News of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth's marriage split broke last weekend, but the former doesn't seem to be hiding under her duvet and wallowing in heartache.

Instead, Cyrus has dropped a surprise new song called 'Slide Away' that fans have speculated is about her husband of eight months.

Unfortunately it's not a cover of the Oasis song, but its lyrics include lines like "Once upon a time it was paradise/ Once upon a time I was paralyzed/ Think I’m gonna miss these harbour lights, but it’s time to let it go."

The pair, who got married in February, announced their split with a statement from their rep which read: "They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy."

Hemsworth, meanwhile, shared his own statement wishing his ex-wife "nothing but health and happiness going forward."

Cyrus has been hanging out in Italy in recent times, being spotted 'getting physical' with Kaitlynn Carter.
