She directs the video herself...

Miley Cyrus breaks with her past on new single 'Midnight Sky'.

The pop rebel returns, with a brand new single and a self-directed video.

The song itself is a punch return, unapologetic in its approach and deeply feminine, highly expressive in its vocal.

The video was steered by Miley herself, and it's a clip steeped in pop culture references - think Joan Jett, or even Debbie Harry's brand of New York punk glamour.

A real statement, it opens a new chapter for the pop heroine.
