Miley Cyrus has announced the release of her forthcoming album and fans couldn’t be more excited for its rock-inspired sound.

The “Wrecking Ball” singer will release her seventh studio album, Plastic Hearts, on 27 November. It will include her single “Midnight Sky” and hugely popular recent covers of Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” and The Cranberries’ ‘Zombie”.

The album’s striking black and pink album cover art seemed to suggest a new, rockier musical direction for the singer, which Cyrus appeared to confirm as she replied to a number of tweets from fans asking her to make a rock album.

PLASTIC HEARTS OUT NOVEMBER 27TH,” she commented in response to a tweet which read: “If Miley dropped a rock album coronavirus would simply disappear.”

Fans shared their excitement about the singer’s forthcoming new sound, with one fan writing: “Let’s talk about how Miley Cyrus could be the greatest rock star of our generation.”

“Miley + Rock Album??!! I collapse rn,” one Twitter user commented, while another fan wrote: “Honestly I think rock is the best genre for Miley to thrive in.”

Writing about the new record, Cyrus said that she had begun working on Plastic Hearts two years ago when she “thought I had it all figured out”.

“Not just the record – its songs/sounds but my whole f***ing life,” she continued. “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 music’s relevance because everything had changed.”

The news of the album’s rockier sound comes just days after the 27-year-old revealed that she has been working on an album of Metallica covers.Cyrus first covered Metallica in 2019, when she performed the band’s classic track “Nothing Else Matters” during her Pyramid Stage set at Glastonbury.
