Miley Cyrus, "Slide Away"

Miley Cyrus unveiled the evocative visual for her power ballad “Slide Away” on Friday (Sept. 6).  

The emotionally-charged video opens with Miley underwater in a slinky gold dress and matching accessories as she processes moving on in the wake of her split with husband Liam Hemsworth.

“Once upon a time, it was paradise/ Once upon a time, I was paralyzed/ Think I’m gonna miss these harbor lights/ But it’s time to let it go,” the superstar sings as she wanders through a raucous house party looking dazed and mournful.

Several scenes from the new video echo those from the clip for Miley’s 2012 No. 2 hit “We Can’t Stop” -- from the hard-partying extras to the shots of the sun-drenched star looking out from the edge of the pool -- except this time, she’s fully detached from the revelry happening around her.  

On Aug. 10, Miley announced her separation from Liam after less than a year of marriage. (The former lovebirds had been on-and-off for nearly a decade after meeting on the set of 2010’s The Last Song.) Less than two weeks later, Liam officially filed for divorce.
