'Prisoner' is part of Miley's upcoming seventh studio album 'Plastic Hearts' set to be released on November 27, 2020, by RCA Records. It is Miley's first full-length album since 'Younger Now' (2017) and the first body of work since 'She Is Coming' (2019).
The album was originally titled 'She Is Miley Cyrus' and was planned to be released in 2019. However, Cyrus' divorce from Liam Hemsworth, vocal cord surgery and the Covid-19 pandemic posed significant delays.
It features production by Louis Bell, the Monsters & Strangerz, Happy Perez, Mark Ronson, Andrew Watt and Andrew Wyatt. Apart from Dua, other guest vocals are provided by Billy Idol, Joan Jett and Stevie Nicks. 'Midnight Sky' was released as the lead single from 'Plastic Hearts' on August 14, 2020, and peaked at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100. 'Plastic Hearts' also features a cover of 'Zombie' by The Cranberries.
