"This song is about honoring who we’ve been, loving who we are & celebrating who we will become.

As for whether Cyrus would ever step back into the shoes of her Disney Channel character, she shared during a virtual appearance on the Carolina With Greg T In The Morning radio show in 2020: "I definitely would like to resurrect her at some point. She needs a big makeover because she's kinda stuck in 2008, so we'll need to go shopping with Miss Montana. But that's sometime in the future and hopefully, I'm directing it.”
