Snippets of Miley Cyrus' new album, entitled Bangerz, have been dropping all weekend, and now the whole album is streaming for FREE on iTunes! The album was made available to stream on September 30th, 4 days before the album will be available in stores to purchase.
The album definitely shows Miley leaving behind her Disney Channel Hannah Montana days and connection to her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, as a country singer, but we're totally loving it! From her VMAs performance to her new "Wrecking Ball," music video, there's certainly been a lot of hype surrounding her new "bad girl" image. And, to answer all the ridicule, Miley said in the MTV documentary Miley: the Movement, "I just needed to let go of the past in a way, so I felt like I could be the bad b---h I am." All we can say is rock on to that!
In conjunction with Mike WiLL Made It as the partial producer of the album, Miley has a completely new sound, so it's great to get to listen to it before the album hits stores. It's an emotionally driven album, with Miley already revealing that one song, "Drive," was written during a difficult time. She told FASHION Magazine, "I wrote it while I was working on Valentine's Day. Emotionally it was such a hard time. It is about needing to leave someone but not really wanting to completely cut yourself off from the relationship. It’s a time when you want to leave but you can’t. It's about moving on."
