We were left stunned at the sound of Noah Cyrus’s breakup ballad “I Burned LA Down.” And now, she’s done it again; she’s released another song that’s sending us into a drop-everything-and listen drill. “Mr. Percocet” is Cyrus’s second single release from her forthcoming album The Hardest Part, which is out July 15.

Cyrus’s latest release is effortlessly intoxicating and reminds us that genre bends for Cyrus. “Mr. Percocet” is a swirling blend of pop sounds and country music. On top of that, “Mr. Percocet” reveals the deep emotional well that the singer pulled from to create the track.

“This song is written about my personal experience with the confusion and insecurities that arise in a relationship when substance abuse is involved,” Cyrus said in a statement. “It causes such manic behavioral changes that you can lose sight of yourself and who you fell in love with.”

I barely recognize you when you wake up in the morning
Must be someone else’s eyes that I look into every night
You’re only kind when you’re all fucked up
You’re only mine till your high is gone but
I wish you’d still love me when your drugs wear off in the morning
, Cyrus sings on the track.

Along with her single release, Cyrus dropped the song’s music video, which moves through scenes of Cyrus in blue-tinted moments of realization. The singer appears to be coming to terms with the toxicity of the relationship.

And if that wasn’t enough, Cyrus also announced her upcoming tour dates which include an appearance at Austin City Limits. You can find the Texas festival tickets HERE and the tour dates below.
