While we’ve yet to receive any official word on the release of her debut album NC-17, Noah Cyrus is steadily releasing single by single as she keeps busy as the opening act for part of Katy Perry‘s Witness World Tour. So far we’ve heard the Labrinth-assisted “Make Me (Cry),” the boozy “Stay Together,” the country tinged “I’m Stuck,” and the emotionally devastating “Almost Famous.”

“I wanna be your lover/ I don’t wanna be your friend/ You don’t know what you got ’till it’s gone my dear/ So tell me that you love me again (tell me that you love me),” Noah croons above the chilly atmospherics, a marching hip-hop beat and menacing loops.
