Update: Fuse has been requested to remove the embedded stream of the song. Check out why we're so excited for Miley's upcoming album right here.

Original Story: With a hosting gig at the 2015 MTV VMAs and at least half a dozen songs completed on her new LP, Miley Cyrus is all-but-confirmed to be making her comeback to the music scene very soon. Following the synthy pop gem "Nightmare" that surfaced earlier this summer, a new Cyrus song has made its way out—but this one's a big departure from her Top 40 roots. 

Reportedly titled "Freaky," the song features Miley admitting her feelings to a lover over a minimal, trippy rock-pop beat, warbling lyrics like, "You take me higher than I've ever been before / Don't laugh when I say that 'cause we just smoked a bowl / I have a hard time anyway saying how I feel / but I'm a little buzzed so I'm keeping it real."

The new tune's got a bit of a Lana Del Rey feel to it, which is in line with how producer Mike Will Made It ("We Can't Stop," "23") described Miley's new sound, "like country Lana Del Rey." It's appropriate given Cyrus' signature twang still on full display here.

While those descriptions sound like "Freaky" would have been recorded for the pop star's upcoming LP, don't forget Miley also has a seven-song EP she's worked on alongside the Flaming Lips. No official word on which record will come out first, but it's very likely "Freaky" was recorded for one of the two projects given its subject matter and sound, versus being a potential leftover from 2013's Bangerz.
