Background and CompositonEdit
"Permanent December" was recorded some time in 2009-2010. Written by Miley Cyrus, John Shanks and Claude Kelly, and produced by Shanks.
Lyrically, the song suggest a devoted girlfriend ignoring boys attempts to date her, but despite this, she only wants the person she's already with. It's an Electronic-heavy-Dance-pop song with elements of Disco, along with an Euro disco breakdown during the bridge, that reflects 1970's Disco and Funk music. The song has a scratchy, electronic-based bass, constantly changed synths, and midtempo production, Auto-Tuned vocals, and bubbly Techno-influenced synth-like-beats.
The song earned a mixed reaction from critics, some likened the production, while some called his dull, "not finished" and many disliked the Auto-Tuned vocals, but some did like the rappy verses.
