Miley Cyrus has gone through a lot of sonic transformations over the years, from the tween-and-teen bops of her Disney years as Hannah Montana to the party album Bangerz in 2013 and, more recently, the glam rock of Plastic Hearts. On her latest — and feverishly anticipated — album Endless Summer Vacation, Cyrus presents her most mature and emotionally honest work to date. We give a listen on this week's show, talk about the power of her voice and why her music is resonating now more than ever.
