Guess what? There’s a Miley Cyrus album and it’s out now. Right now.
After a surprise closing performance at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards—of a brand new song, “Dooo It!”—Cyrus made the announcement: Her new album, Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz, has not only been recorded, it’s also online for a free stream on Soundcloud, above. (She shared a link, mileycyrusandherdeadpetz.com, which seems to be having some trouble so far. Maybe the new album will be a free download over there?!)
In all, Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz contains 23 songs, with featured guests including Big Sean, Ariel Pink and former collaborator and master producer Mike WiLL Made-It. It’s Cyrus’ first album of new material since 2013’s Bangerz, and it's actually not a complete surprise that it's all here for free listening.
