With her new single, "Malibu" slated for release on May 11, it seems like only a matter of time before Miley Cyrus' new album release date is announced. In a recent Billboard interview, the singer revealed that she will indeed be dropping a new love song dedicated to her fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, later this month, but she left fans hanging a bit when she failed to mention the release date of the new album. Luckily, I am all about the speculation.
It's my guess that Cyrus' new album will most likely drop sometime near the end of summer or early fall of this year. Each of her last two studio albums, Bangerz (October 2013) and Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz (August 2015), followed that pattern. It could perhaps happen sooner rather than later, when you consider the 24-year-old's wildly unpredictable nature. Cyrus literally dropped her surprise Petz album on the same day as the first single, "Dooo It," became available on SoundCloud in 2015.
Although exact details on when the new music will become available have yet to be revealed, the former Hannah Montana star did shed some light on what listeners can expect from her upcoming body of work. In addition to the "breezy" love song penned for Hemsworth, the singer-songwriter shares that her new sound will also have a bit of a socially conscious undertone to it. For example, the album will contain songs for Hillary Clinton and for women in the workplace as well. Although, she has been careful to maintain that the album will not be entirely political in sound.
“This record is a reflection of the fact that yes, I don’t give a f*ck, but right now is not a time to not give a f*ck about people," she told Billboard. "I’m giving the world a hug and saying, ‘Hey, look. We’re good, I love you.’ And I hope you can say you love me back.”
In light of the country's huge political divide, the "Wrecking Ball" entertainer has also turned over a new leaf in the way she approaches people with her opinion.
“I like talking to people that don’t agree with me," she continued. "But I don’t think I can do that in an aggressive way. I don’t think those people are going to listen to me when I’m sitting there in nipple pasties, you know?”
Her evolution has certainly been a roller coaster ride for fans; she's switched her sound, genre, and looks more than I can even remember. It'll definitely be interesting to hear what she has to offer fans in this new album whenever it actually comes out.
