On "Stay Together," Noah Cyrus sings about being young and wild and free. She sings about cigarettes and bad DJs and broken iPhones. She sings about not giving a fuck, in the way that only a 17-year-old could.
The song is the second single from her as-yet-unreleased first album, which is literally called NC-17. The first was "Make Me Cry," a melancholy duet with a singer named Labrinth. Both songs showcase Noah's voice, which, like her big sister Miley's, is full of personality. And both songs are very good.
Today, The FADER is debuting the video for "Stay Together." It features Noah and some pals cruising around in what feels like some kind of teenage summer utopia, where the light is always just right. It's the type of clip you imagine was a blast to make. According to an email from Noah to The FADER, it was: "I had two of my real life friends featured in the video, and I got to make some new friends," she wrote. "My favorite part was spray painting the bathtub!”
