Miley Cyrus spent most of 2015 dabbling in psychedelic sounds with help from The Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne.
They conjured up a 23-track LP titled Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz and shared it onto SoundCloud. At the time, it was rumored Miley was adamant about releasing the project for free despite her label's stern warning, and if it came to it... would buy herself out of her contract to do so.
The "Karen Don't Be Sad" singer is hard at work on her forthcoming pop album which is slated to drop some time this year. She's even filmed a visual for it already that got dad Billy Ray's stamp of approval. Making Dead Petz available to stream on Apple Music and Spotify and buy on iTunes could be Miley's bid to remind people she's here to stay.
While I prefer Miley as a Can't Be Tamed pop star, there was something delicate and profound about Dead Petz. Sure she sang about some wacky shit, but it was deeply personal and introspective. Punishing a singer for keeping it one hundred is no bueno. Hopefully Miley can find a happy medium on her forthcoming LP.
