I'd love to know the story behind "Wrecking ball"

It's a unusual combination of writers:

Quote
Lukasz Gottwald Maureen Anne McDonald Stephan Moccio Sacha Skarbek Henry Russell Walter

Pop/Acoustic writers like Sacha Skarbek with Dr Luke.
And I liked it..

     Good point, Turnaround....I think this may be partly why it's so good, and different sounding.....I looked up Stephan Moccio recently, for example....he's an excellent pianist/composer/arranger....classically trained......

Probably this was also for another artist (Marina and the Diamonds?!) and would have been a calmer song than it is now. Dr Luke came in made it match with Mileys current sound/image.

I think the A&R found the song interesting and decided to pitch it for Miley. To fit the "edgier" pop sound of the album, they sent it to Luke & Cirkut to produce it and they made some minor changes, so they got minor writing credits.

It's not that usual in producer to get writing credits of songs they didn't write, but usually A-list artists do that to get royalties.

And a new acoustic version with new vocals was released, with the usual country vocal runs she usually does.

      This is one record though -- even though it's a really good song on it's own -- where the production/sound is what makes it great. I can't even imagine the record any other way, it's so powerful.  I wanna listen to the acoustic version too, though!! :D

EDIT: Found acoustic version here: http://www.josepvinaixa.com/blog/miley-cyrus-wrecking-ball-acoutic-premiere/     Don't like -- they changed the fourth chord in the verses from minor to major for some weird reason :-(

When I heard this for the first time on the radio the other day I wasn't sure I really cared for it. But straight away on second listen I totally fell in love. That chorus is so infectious and powerful, it reminds me of her other ballads that I also love. I honestly wasn't expecting her to do something so mature on this record.

James Arthur covered the song and it really works perfectly in this stripped down version.

The singles are the best in my opinion , so much fillers!

Wrecking Ball  :P

Sasha Skarbek was part of the team that wrote it first, then the label had it sent to Dr. Luke. Happened to Rami/Carl for Starships with RedOne.
