It looks like Miley Cyrus is read for another "Party in the U.S.A." The singer has announced that she has just signed a deal with RCA Records and that she's on working with "Party" hitmaker Dr. Luke on her follow-up to 2010's Can't Be Tamed.
The album is slated to drop sometime in 2013 and remains untitled,Billboard reports. In addition to working with Pharrell Williams, Hit-Boy and Da Internz, Cyrus also recruited Tyler, the Creator to make a cameo on a track that Cyrus wrote with Mary J. Blige.
"I wrote this song with Mary J. Blige, and Tyler, the Creator heard it and said, 'I am obsessed with this song, and I will guest on it if you promise me that you will keep it on the album.' And he killed it! I really didn't want to make a hip-hop record, and I'm not trying at all to be a Rihanna or a Nicki [Minaj]....That's not my vibe," she told Seventeen about the collaboration. "When I was growing up, my older brother would sneak me Nelly CDs, my dad had me listening to Dolly [Parton] and Johnny [Cash], and my mom is a complete metal head. So this record is a weird mixture of all that."
Rumors about the album began to surface last June, shortly after she announced her engagement to Liam Hemsworth. Then, last September she promised MTV News that it would be "the biggest record I've ever had."
This marks Cyrus' first album release without Disney backing her. She also opened up about this new chapter in her career. "I've never gotten to make a record like this because Disney's always been on my back saying, 'You've got to promote the TV show in two months, so make sure your record's done...and when you promote your record, can you promote the show, the movie and the "Hannah Montana" record?' I was basically carrying two people's careers and trying to make mine the priority. Now, it's almost like being a new artist and trying to make a first impression," she said in Seventeen. "I think the best thing I could have done was take those two years off to really live, because now people don't think of me as who I was on the TV show."
