Miley Cyrus Performs ‘Midnight Sky,’ Covers ‘Maneater’ On Fallon

Miley Cyrus performed her new single “Midnight Sky” on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday, September 10.

During the show, Cyrus also discussed how she contacted Stevie Nicks and asked her permission to sample “Edge of Seventeen” in her latest song, “Midnight Sky.”

“I sent her the song and I said, ‘I have an alternate melody, if you don’t want me to kind of like pay tribute to you and your greatness and how much you’ve inspired me,'” the singer recalled. “And she said, ‘You can borrow from me anytime.'”

Cyrus had dropped “Midnight Sky” last month along with a self-directed video. She also performed the single at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards.

“It’s been a long night and the mirror is tellin’ me to go home/ But it’s been a long time since I’ve felt this good on my own/ Nine years went by with my hands tied up in your ropes/ Forever and ever, no more,” she sings in the track.

Cyrus also covered Hall & Oates‘ 1982 hit “Maneater,” which she devoted to her “future ex-husband.”

“So ‘Maneater,’ I think it’s very important to be transparent. I’m freshly single so anyone watching that’s my future ex-husband just know I told you,” Cyrus said.
