It feels like just yesterday Miley Cyrus dropped her coming-of-age opus Bangerz and twerked into our hearts and playlists. And it looks like the superstar is already hard at work on its follow-up.
Super-producer Mike Will Made It—a.k.a. the dude responsible for “We Can’t Stop” and other LP standouts like “Maybe You’re Right” and “SMS (Bangerz)” featuring Britney Spears—gave an interview with Noisey where he offered a little insight into Miley’s upcoming disc.
According to the writer, Mike Will revealed Miley’s already six songs deep into her next album. The star has been recording vocals at her home with beats that he sends her. The writer adds that the tracks sound “like country Lana Del Rey backed by a choir, except it’s Miley pouring her heart out.”
If we base that statement off of Miley’s twangy cover of “Summertime Sadness” from last year, then this album is already shaping up to be quite incredible.
Earlier this week, Miley gave the first taste of her upcoming material via a live performance of somber new track “Twinkle Song.” Cyrus described her inspiration for the cut, saying, “I write about death a lot, randomly, but my friend, she lost her cat, and I had these crazy dreams the night her cat died. I feel like her cat kind of told me what to say to her to get her through it.”
Let’s hope Miley’s collection of death-inspired, Lana-sounding country tunes comes sooner than later. Let’s also hope there’s at least one twerking jam in there too…you know, for old time’s sake.[Source]
