Miley Cyrus is working on a Metallica covers album, but before then, the pop star will release her seventh studio album, “Plastic Hearts,” in November

Miley Cyrus took to social media on Friday (Oct. 23) to announce her seventh studio album, “Plastic Hearts,” will arrive next month.

“I began this album over 2 years ago. Thought I had it all figured out. Not just the record with its songs and sounds but my whole … life,” she stated.

“But no one checks an ego like life itself,” Cyrus added. “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.”

Cyrus also talked about the Woolsey fire, which set fire to her Malibu home and destroyed many of her physical possessions in 2018.

“Nature did what I now see as a favor and destroyed what I couldn’t let go of for myself,” Cyrus said. “I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes.”

She continued, “Luckily my collaborators still had most of the music that was burned up in journals and computers filled with songs for the EP series I was working on at the time. But it never felt right to release my ‘story’ (each record being a continual autobiography) with a huge chapter missing.”

Cyrus’ new album is available for preorder here.

In other news, Cyrus recently told Interview Magazine that she’s also working on a Metallica covers album.

“We’ve been working on a Metallica cover album and I’m here working on that,” she said. “We’re so lucky to be able to continue to work on our art during all of this. At first, it felt uninspiring and now I’ve been totally ignited.”
