The Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz album will probably be looked upon as one of the weirdest, most experimental projects a mainstream pop act has ever recorded. The album in it's entirety was uploaded on Soundcloud in 2015 and left the world "shooketh" with its extraordinary, psychedelic sound and audacious visuals.
Part of the shock value of the album came from the fact that it was a surprise release. Miley had been talking about releasing a new album for a while, but her Smilers were shocked when she released the tracks to stream for free on Soundcloud right after her VMA's hosting gig. Her record label RCA wasn't convinced that she should release such a controversial and unprofitable project, but Miley insisted that if they didn't let her do it, she would buy herself out of her contract to do so on her own terms.
Now Smilers are once again surprised, for after two years of torment listening to disgusting SoundCloud rips on repeat, Dead Petz is finally available to stream on major services like Apple Music and Spotify, as well as up for purchase on iTunes.
Even though the majority of fans prefer Miley's mainstream pop tunes like 'We Can't Stop', there is a huge group of Smilers who can appreciate the real beauty of this album. In just two years, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz has developed a reputation as a bold and dedicated departure from the traditional pop fare. Hopefully, its wider availability will help its critical reassessment along.
