22 Moments in Miley Cyrus' Rise to Fame

Sources close to Miley Cyrus have revealed some unsettling rumors about her next album.

The 22-year-old has been in the studio producing her 4th solo effort to follow up her 2013 "Bangerz" album, which has been certified platinum -- selling 2 million copies worldwide -- and spawning three chart-topping single: "We Can't Stop," "Wrecking Ball," and "Adore You."

According to the rumor mill on HitsDailyDouble.com, Miley Cyrus is considering giving away her next album for free. Sources say she's been producing the album completely solo, in addition to consultation from previous Bangerz producer Mike Will.

Cyrus also revealed her wishes in an interview to Marie Claire, stating "I make [music] because I like it. And then I put it out to the public because there are some people out there who like it, too." She even threatened to buy out the remainder of her music contract with RCA. This way, she can take on full creative control, including the ability to give away her album free of record label interjection.

Back in June, Cyrus leaked a song titled "Nightmare" which ignited the fandom's thirst for new material. Nobody knew for sure if it was just a leftover from the "Bangerz" era or if it was new material. Turns out, it wasn't recorded for the next record.

Take a listen:



No one knows for sure what will happen with this next album but fans can anticipate a wild performance from Cyrus when she hosts this year's MTV Video Music Awards on August 30th.
