The wait is finally over!
On Thursday, Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus debuted their new collaboration “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart”, dropping a vibrant video for the highly anticipated track, which features a driving, futuristic beat paired with a country-tinged acoustic guitar riff.
“It wasn’t an intentional thing,” Ronson tells BBC News in a recent interview, describing the song’s melding of Nashville twang and disco-inspired drums. “I heard the drawl in her voice and the twang when I saw her live on ‘SNL’. My jaw dropped and I became super-fixated about being able to work with her.”
However, he adds that the intention was not “to make a Western song. I think with Miley, just the way she wrote the verses and the way the melody came out, came naturally.”
