Miley Cyrus took to Instagram on Thursday (October 22) to announce that she will be releasing her new 12-track album, Plastic Hearts, on November 27 via RCA Records.
The record, which is her seventh, is a follow-up to Younger Now, which she released in 2017. It will contain her latest hit “Midnight Sky,” and her covers of Blondie‘s “Heart of Glass” and the Cranberries‘ “Zombie.”
A hand-written message from Miley reads: “If you’re reading this. know that I f–king love and appreciate you on the deepest level. I began this album over 2 years ago. Thought I had it all figured out. Not just the record with its songs and sounds but my whole f–king life.
“But no one checks an ego like life itself. Just when I thought the body of work was finished. it was ALL erased. Including most of the musics relevance. Because EVERYTHING had changed. Nature did what I now see as a favor and destroyed what I couldn’t let go of for myself. I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes.”
She added that her collaborators had most of the music that was burned up in journals and computers filled with songs for the EP series she was working on at the time.
“In triumph and gratitude I present to you my 7th studio record, Plastic Hearts. To be released Nov. 27th 2020. XXMC,” she wrote.
Cyrus also unveiled the cover art, which was shot by iconic Rock & Roll photographer Mick Rock.
