Apparently one of Miley Cyrus' forth­com­ing new albums isn't a "a Miley record", which is a bit confusing.

Basically, as well as working on her own album, the 'Adore You' hitmaker has also been working on a project with per­sist­ent pop ruiners the Flaming Lips.

In a recent interview with Marie Claire she said she wanted to give that album away for free and that if her label, RCA, didn't like that then she would buy herself out of the contract.

A close personal friend of Cyrus' then got in touch with Billboard to clear some things up about it all.

It’s not a Miley record,” the 'source' explained. "It’s a project she’s been working on with the Flaming Lips. It’s amazing, it’s incred­ible, it just needs to be under­stood that it’s not a typical, straight­for­ward Miley record — we don’t want there to be confusion in the mar­ket­place.”

Heaven forbid.

Asked what it sounded like he/she said the following things:

It is somewhat psy­che­delic rock, but Miley’s writing sens­ib­il­it­ies lean toward pop, so it’s a nice, healthy mix of both. But at the end of the day, it is Miley.”

Is she super-excited about it though?

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.”

As far as leaving RCA goes, well that's just not true.

RCA has been a phe­nom­enal partner,” he/she continued. “They let an artist be an artist, and there’s zero animosity. They’ve been a part of this every step of the way."

We wonder if this unnamed source speaking to Billboard is affil­i­ated to any par­tic­u­lar record label? WE WILL NEVER KNOW.
