Miley Cyrus is responding to fans after discovering her new album, Plastic Hearts, was unavailable in many retailers on its Friday release date.
The singer reposted a bunch of her fans’ frustrated tweets upon finding out they couldn’t get their hands on a physical copy of the album.
“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,” Miley wrote in response to fans Monday.
“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,” she explained.
“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,” Miley continued. “It was created BY ME personally at home making art FOR YOU. I want it in your hands!”
Miley concluded that she’s “outgrown blame” and sees it as a “waste of time and energy.” She added, “This album was a labor of love and nothing can sabotage my admiration for the record my collaborators & I have created.”
It’s not yet clear how the snafu might affect Miley’s Plastic Hearts first-week sales.
