“All Three” – Single Review
She just released her latest single “All Three,” a ballad detailing a toxic relationship that the singer just can’t seem to walk away from.
“But darling, if I could // I would fall for someone good // someone good for me,” she sings over a country-ish acoustic guitar lick. “But we’re suckers for the thrill // playing fuck, marry, and kill // Honey, we’re all three.”
Cyrus is one of the many artists who are adding country influences to their music, bringing the genre back towards the mainstream. Lil Nas X is the most well known example of an artist who’s adding country sounds to their music; “Old Town Road” was the biggest song of 2019, and one of the biggest songs ever.
THE END OF EVERYTHING was a mash-up of acoustic guitars and harmonies that wouldn’t sound out of place in Nashville, and R&B and pop-influenced tracks. Cyrus is doing a good job of carving out a name for herself as an artist, as opposed to just the sister of Miley and daughter of Billy Ray.
There’s no word yet on whether there is another album or project on the way. Maybe Cyrus is taking a leaf out of many other artists’ books and simply releasing music for the hell of it while we’re all stuck in lockdown.
The song was dropped with little fanfare; no Twitter hashtags or live streams. Cyrus simply posted the single art on Instagram with the message, “All Three out now. link in bio ❤️”
