Miley Cyrus' 'BANGERZ' Album To Hit Stores On Oct. 8


Miley Cyrus announced on Thursday that her next album, "BANGERZ," will arrive in stores on Oct. 8.

The former "Hannah Montana" star's fourth studio album is led by Cyrus' hit single "We Can't Stop." The track caused controversy with its lyrics alluding to drug usage and the accompanying music video showing a scantily clad Cyrus provocatively dancing (or, as the kids say, twerking).

The 20-year-old singer got fans hyped for new details on the album on Thursday afternoon, announcing that she would publicize the "BANGERZ" release date once her devotees got a hashtag trending on Twitter. Cyrus also revealed that the project will include collaborations with rappers Big Sean, Future, French Montana, and Nelly.

"I had no preconceived ideas [with] this record," Cyrus wrote on Twitter on Thursday. "The album revealed its name about eight songs in when I realized we got [nothing] but bangerz."

"All [you] gotta do is listen to my record once and you'll know exactly why my record is called 'BANGERZ,'" Cyrus added.
