Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz is the fifth studio album by American singer Miley Cyrus. It was announced and released for free online streaming on August 30, 2015, by her independent “Smiley Miley” record label. Opting to produce an album less heavily reliant on computerized elements than her previous record Bangerz (2013), Cyrus began planning the project in 2013 before the latter record had been released. Work continued into 2014 and 2015, at which time Cyrus befriended and began collaborating with psychedelic rock band the Flaming Lips. In addition to the Flaming Lips, executive producer Cyrus partnered with producers including Mike Will Made It and Oren Yoel, with whom she had collaborated on Bangerz. It features guest vocals from Big Sean, who previously appeared on Bangerz, Sarah Barthel from Phantogram, and Ariel Pink.
