With tabloids and blogs focusing on Miley Cyrus' rocky relationship with Liam Hemsworth, the former "Hannah Montana" star has kept her attention focused firmly on the release of her new single, "We Can't Stop," and she finally released it for her fans today.
Cyrus, 20, has said the new album - expected to hit stores later this year - will show a different side of her. "I feel like I can really be myself," she told Billboard. "I really have more of a connection of who I am, and I feel like I can maybe express that more in my music now."
In this album, she branches out from her roots, working with hip-hop producers such as Hit-Boy and Pharrell Williams. It's also rumored that pop idol Justin Bieber might be involved.

Discussing her music is a welcome change for Cyrus, whose relationship with Liam Hemsworth has been a popular conversation topic for weeks.
"I'm not home with my boyfriend all the time. We work," she told V magazine last month. "Every week it's, 'Are they broken up, because we don't see a photo of them?'"
In spite of all the rumors, Cyrus has been seen wearing her engagement ring lately and last week she shared a photo of herself wearing what appeared to be a wedding dress.
