Pairing up for their first single, Australian songwriter and producer PJ Harding and Best New Artist Grammy-nominated songstress (and the younger sister of Miley Cyrus), Noah Cyrus have released the stunning Dear August.

Having already co-written four songs from Noah’s 2020 EP, The End of Everything, the duo who met at a a summer songwriting camp in Bali, in 2018, were clearly meant to meet and make music, and Dear August is a beautiful example of why.

Dear August, follows from the double-platinum hit July, which PJ recalls as “an incredibly uncertain time.” He continues, “I’m fairly easygoing, but I was deeply anxious about being in Los Angeles with the pandemic getting out of control. I was having lots of discussions with my family about moving back to Australia. We eventually did. ‘Dear August’ was written as a love letter to the future, hoping there’s a light on the other side. We haven’t seen the light, but we’re still looking.”

“It was full circle and funny for us to write ‘Dear August’ after ‘July’,” observes Noah. “I was going through a lot. I suffer from anxiety and depression. We were in this cloud of darkness where it’s very easy to fall into bad habits. July and August 2020 were the hardest parts of quarantine for me. I lost my grandma, and I was looking to the future for hope. The song reminds me you will get to the light at the end of the tunnel. It may not be perfect, but you’ll get there.”
