Miley Cyrus Drops “Lighter” Music Video.

The high-pitched chants of “Miley! DETROIT, MI— Dressed in a gold bikini top and mini skirt with bubble letters attached spelling “Do It,” Miley Cyrus hit The Fillmore stage Saturday night with a kaleidoscopic array of characters.The singer dropped the self-directed (she directed with Wayne Coyne) music video for her “fan-favorite” song “Lighter” on Saturday morning. “Lighter” is track 15 off of Cyrus’ fifth studio album, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, which was released Aug. 30. “F— yeah!Following Miley Cyrus and the Flaming Lips’ surreal first Dead Petz gig together at Chicago’s Riveria Theatre, the singer dropped her colorful, hallucinatory new video for “Lighter.” In the video, co-directed by Cyrus and Wayne Coyne, a nude Cyrus sings the Dead Petz standout while enveloped in a psychedelic, kaleidoscopic and captivating light projection engineered by Jen Starks.

While the show had its raunchy moments, including Cyrus’ self-described “porni-corn” costume with tail, horn and prosthetic phallus, the reigning vibe was more whimsical than not. Band leader Wayne Coyne served as a kind of hype man and onstage foil to Cyrus, providing unfussy backing vocals and manning smoke blowers and silly-string shooters. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again.

The show’s first straightforward bit — if you overlooked Miley’s school-play sun costume, at any rate — came with the brooding “The Floyd Song (Sunrise),” a tribute to her deceased pet dog, seguing into the dreamy “Something About Space Dude.” Indeed, for all of the night’s over-the-top kookiness, the show drew its real power from those sorts of musical moments, including a gorgeous “Karen Don’t Be Sad” and a climactic, journey-to-the-center-of-your-mind stretch with “Milky Milky Milk” and “Tiger Dreams” that tapped the Lips’ art-rock chops before a giant disco ball. Taking the stage alone late in the set, Cyrus apologized for her primitive piano skills and cited a talk she’d just watched by ecologist Carl Safina as she took her rasp-laced alto through another pair of pet eulogies, “Pablow the Blowfish” and “Twinkle Song.” She’d earlier strapped on an acoustic guitar for a deceptively poignant “You Are My Sunshine” and the first-ever glimpse of a melodic new original that for now we’ll dub “The Rainbow Song.” Where Cyrus aims to pull her fans next remains to be seen; so far they’ve been game to go along.
