Miley Cyrus released her new album “Paper Hearts” on Nov. 27th but some fans were frustrated when they couldn’t buy it in stores.
One fan tweeted, “My Target shipment got delayed for dec 15 … so it doesn’t count for first week sales.” Another said, “No stores within 35 minutes of me have any copies & I live in atlanta that’s insane.”
Miley reached out to fans on Twitter saying, “My fans are everything to me & 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.”
“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 won’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,” Cyrus continued. “It was created BY ME personally at home making art FOR YOU. I want it in your hands!”
She says she has “outgrown blame,” as she considers it “a waste of time & energy.”
“This album was a labor of love and nothing can sabotage my admiration for the record my collaborators & I have created.”
