Singer Miley Cyrus graced the cover of Billboard magazine for its June 22, 2013 issue and in her interview with the publication, she talked all about her new album and what fans can expect to hear when it gets released later in the year.

The 20-year-old released the first single off her upcoming album on June 3, titled We Can't Stop, and debuted a snippet of her second single Last Goodbye this week. As she gears up for the release of her entire album, the singer/actress is ready to debut her new sound: mixing hip-hop and country. Her new music goes in a completely different direction that what she has released in the past.

"Right now, when people go to iTunes and listen to my old music, it's so irritating to me because I can't just erase that stuff and start over," she told the magazine. "My last record [2009's Can't Be Tamed] I feel so disconnected from-I was 16 or 17 when I made it. When you're in your 20s, you just don't really know that person anymore." 

Feeling disconnect from her past records, Cyrus added, "I want to start as a new artist. I consider my upcoming album my first, really." 

Her lyrics also hint at a more grownup Cyrus, far from the days when she starred on Disney channel's Hannah Montana. In We Can't Stop she sings, "To my homegirls with the big butts/Shaking it like we at the strip club" and makes drug references such as "Everyone in line in the bathroom/Trying to get a line in the bathroom/We all so turned up here."

The song represents how Cyrus is living her life, defending her against reports that assume to know otherwise.

"I didn't make this song for the critics, but for the people living it," she said while smoking a cigarette between shoots for the publication. "I'm 20 years old and I want to talk to the people that are up all night with their friends. It's based on a true story of a crazy night I had: When I heard the song for the first time, it captured exactly what I was living." 

First day working on the album with Pharrell the pair created a song called Rubber Band and shortly after had another, 4 x 4. Will.i.am and Dr. Luke both make appearances on her album. 

Addressing what exactly the theme of her new album is, Cyrus said she is now moving over to "a more urban side," though she always wanted "country-rock influences." She explained, however, that the new record is in no way a hip-hop album, but pop all the way through.
