You read that right, Miley's next record 'is not a Miley record.'
"The release is "a throwback to a time when people released [albums] that were synergistic and not just a collection of songs,” the source said. “She’s super-excited about it. The Flaming Lips are her favorite band and she’s wanted to work with them her entire life. I think people are really going to be surprised.”
The unnamed source also clarified she remains signed to RCA Records, no matter how the Flaming Lips collabo gets distributed (free or not). “RCA has been a phenomenal partner,” the source says. “They let an artist be an artist, and there’s zero animosity. They’ve been a part of this every step of the way."
