Noah Cyrus Teams Up With Father Billy Ray Cyrus For An Emotional Duet Of ‘Noah (Stand Still)’

Noah Cyrus keeps it all in the family by enlisting dad Billy Ray Cyrus on a new duet version of her single “Noah (Stand Still).”

The tender track, which arrived Friday (September 23) at midnight, finds the younger Cyrus reflecting on advice she received from her father amid Xanax addiction she secretly struggled when she called on her 20th birthday.

“Death on my doorstep if I took just one more step/ There’d be nothing left of me but these songs/ And my father said to me, ‘Noah/ When you don’t know where you’re going’/ Just stand still / Soon enough you will,’” Noah shouts over quiet acoustic guitar on the opening verse.

For the second verse, she hands the microphone to her father before the two spend the rest of the song harmonizing as they sing, “Just stand still and watch your sunset leave/ The lonely dirt beneath your feet to fill/ Just stand still / Sixty-seven thousand miles an hour/ Around the sun and that’s what it feels like/ Just stand still.”

A solo version of “Noah (Stand Still)” is the opening track on the singer’s highly anticipated debut album The hardest part, which was released earlier this month. The LP also contains the singles “I burned LA down,” “Sir. Percocet,” “Ready to go,” “Every Beginning Ends” with Death Cab for Cuties Benjamin Gibbard and “I Just Want a Lover”.
