Release Date: Oct. 8
Label: RCA Records
“I want to start as a new artist,” Cyrus told Billboard in June. “I consider my upcoming album my first, really.” Indeed, Cyrus’ first full-length since 2010’s uneven “Can’t Be Tamed” will represent a departure from both her Disney image (the former “Hannah Montana” star is working with hip-hop mainstays like Mike Will Made It, Pharrell Williams and Future) and Disney-affiliated former label home: “Bangerz” will be her first release on RCA after leaving Hollywood Records. Top 40 has certainly taken a shine to “Miley 2.0,” as “We Can’t Stop,” her fourth album’s lead single, has hovered in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100 for more than two months.
