Almost a year after the release of the rock-heavy album Plastic Hearts, Miley Cyrus has been hard at work on her follow-up ninth studio record, according to her new label home, Columbia Records.
Previously under RCA Records, Cyrus jumped over to Colombia in March, and her upcoming record will be her first under the new label and management Crush Music.
Cyrus has been sharing teases of the new era’s aesthetics, which appear to pull heavy inspiration from the days of 1970s disco and its Studio 54 heyday.
The classic-rock-inspired Plastic Hearts record had a successful run when it was released last fall, debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart and No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
Although the forthcoming record will be her first full-length release under Columbia, Cyrus has already dropped a single under her new music home in “Without You,” the duet remix with Australian rising pop star The Kid LAROI.
Cyrus has kept a busy schedule throughout 2021 while working on the new record, signing an overall deal and partnership with NBC, working extensively with Gucci on brand advertising and singing a cover of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” with Elton John and others for The Metallica Blacklist tribute album.
In addition to the news of her next record being in the works, Cyrus has relaunched her MileyWorld website that originally started in 2007 as she transitioned out of the Hannah Montana moniker and started releasing music under her real name. Through the site, she has shared an exclusive full, unedited video of her recent Austin City Limits performance for fans who sign up for her mailing list.
