Miley Cyrus isn’t too happy that her supporters couldn’t get physical copies of Plastic Hearts when they should have.
As per NME, the singer took to Twitter to respond to fans who were unable to get their hands on a physical copy of her latest album.
Cyrus released her seventh studio album on Friday, November 27th, but it wasn’t long before a problem was noticed.
In the U.S., physical copies were unavailable on the actual release date due to major retailers’ stock limitations of physical music in anticipation of Black Friday. As the release date of Plastic Hearts fell on the same date, it was simply a case of terrible timing.
Her impatient fans took to social media to show their frustrations about not receiving their physical pre-orders as well as not being able to find any copies in the shops.

Two days later, Cyrus quickly issued a response to appease her supporters. “My fans are everything to me and to know y’all are disappointed when going out to stores/calling/checking stock to be let down I am equally/if not more frustrated,” she wrote in a Twitter post.
“When choosing 11/27 THE SUGGESTED DATE for album release my team and I were never told major retailers don’t stock physical albums on Black Friday and wouldn’t get copies of PH until a few weeks after release.
The packaging of the record is intimate, honest, and a visual reflection of the sound of my new record that I am so proud of. It was created BY ME personally at home making art FOR YOU. I want it in your hands!”
She finished: “I’ve outgrown blame. It’s a waste of time and energy. This album was a labor of love and nothing can sabotage my admiration for the record my collaborators and I have created.”
Plastic Hearts was one of 2020’s most eagerly anticipated albums and showcased Miley Cyrus’ new classic rock direction. It features the tracks ‘Midnight Sky’, ‘High’, as well as intriguing collaborations with Joan Jett (‘Bad Karma’) and Dua Lipa (‘Prisoner’).
