Miley Cyrus dropped a surprise announcement on Twitter by saying her new album, Plastic Hearts, will be out on November 27. The album’s lead single, “Midnight Sky,” was released in August and gave fans just a taste of Cyrus’ new rock image. There will be a total of 15 tracks on the album, but no tracklist has been revealed yet. However, Plastic Hearts does include Cyrus’ live cover of “Heart Of Glass” from the iHeart Music Festival and a live cover of “Zombie” from the NIVA Save Our Stages Festival.

Cyrus released a statement on her social media pages about how she began working on the album over two years ago when she thought she had it all figured out, but then everything changed. She talked about how, by losing her house in a fire, nature did her a favor. Cyrus’ collaborators still had most of the music that was lost in the fire. All her journals and computers were filled with songs for an EP she was working on at the time but felt it wasn’t right to release with such a huge chapter missing. That chapter would be called “The Beginning,” and it’s far from the end.
Plastic Hearts, which will be Cyrus’ seventh studio album, is released on November 27 and is available for pre-order/pre-save now.
