The popstar rocks out in her latest release, which includes earlier singles "Midnight Sky" and "Prisoner"

Miley Cyrus brings her pop edge to old school rock ‘n’ roll in her latest, Plastic Hearts, released on Friday, November 27.

In the album, Miley is still very much the wild child from her Bangerz era – though her new sound channels the headbanging energy of iconic rock acts of decades past, from Blondie to Joan Jett to Stevie Nicks, who she also collaborates with/covers in several tracks.

It also includes two previously released singles: “Midnight Sky,” and “Prisoner,” featuring Dua Lipa.

In a handwritten letter, Miley recalled that she began writing the album over two years ago, but “life itself” had other plans.

“Thought I had it all figured out,” she wrote. “Not just the record — its songs/sounds but my whole fucking life. 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.”

Plastic Hearts is Miley’s seventh studio album, following 2017’s Younger Now, her 2015 experimental album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, and her hit 2013 hit Bangerz.
