According to Britain's The Sun newspaper, the "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker is recording a rock record with Ozzy Osbourne producer Andrew Watt, that includes a collaboration with US band Blink-182 - and she's drawing on her split from "The Hunger Games" star for her new sound.
"Miley had a lot of music ready to go last summer but went back to the drawing board when she split up with Liam," an insider told the publication. "There was a lot of soul-searching to be done and she re-evaluated everything in her life, including the songs she was preparing to release."
"She got in the studio with Blink-182 at the end of last year and is really pleased with the result. The album is now sounding much more rock 'n' roll. It's a far cry from her pop sound of years gone by."
Miley and Liam wed in December, 2018, but split last summer (19), with the actor filing for divorce from his ex in August, citing irreconcilable differences.
"Slide Away" star Miley has since moved on with singer Cody Simpson.
