“Angels Like You” is the third song from the seventh studio album “Plastic Hearts” by Miley Cyrus, and was released on the 27th November 2020. “Angels Like You” is a love ballad written by Cyrus, Louis Bell, watt, Ali Tamposi and Ryan Tedder, with Bell and watt in charge of production.
“Angels Like You” has been speculated to be about an ex-girlfriend of Cyrus’ named Kaitlynn Carter, whom Cyrus dated for a month in 2019. The two supposedly split up due to the relationship becoming too serious too quickly. Speaking to Zane Lowe about “Plastic Hearts” as a whole and the songs on the album, Cyrus had this to say when it came to “Angels Like You”:
“I guess a lot of my songs that I write are unapologetic and, I guess, are shameless, but not that one. So at first listen you go like: “Man, she’s really putting it out there.”, like i know, “You’re gonna wish we never met on the day I leave” you’re gonna think I’m cold-blooded but then it’s like “It’s not your fault” This song is saying – there is like some remorse to it – all these things should add up on paper to “You’re the one for me”, but I know that you’re wrong for me. Maybe it’s part of being someone that thrives in chaos or some sort of conflict with creativity. I really respect actors that can go in and out of character and leave it. In my love life, I should maybe be more like Denzel Washington or something. You know, I should be like a really good actor that can play all these roles and then go home and leave it.”
