Miley Cyrus fans rejoice! There WILL be a new Miley album this year!

She announced that she has just signed a deal with RCA Records and that she's working with "Party in the USA" hit-maker Dr. Luke on her new album.

It's set to be in stores sometime in 2013.

Working with the best of the best like Pharell and Tyler, the Creator, Miley promises she's not trying to be like Nicki Minaj or Rihanna with her new sound.

"I really didn't want to make a hip-hop record, and I'm not trying at all to be a Rihanna or a Nicki [Minaj]....That's not my vibe...When I was growing up, my older brother would sneak me Nelly CDs, my dad had me listening to Dolly [Parton] and Johnny [Cash], and my mom is a complete metal head. So this record is a weird mixture of all that," she told Seventeen.

This will be Miley's first album without Disney's backing.

""I've never gotten to make a record like this because Disney's always been on my back saying, 'You've got to promote the TV show in two months, so make sure your record's done...and when you promote your record, can you promote the show, the movie and the "Hannah Montana" record?' I was basically carrying two people's careers and trying to make mine the priority. Now, it's almost like being a new artist and trying to make a first impression," she said in Seventeen.

"I think the best thing I could have done was take those two years off to really live, because now people don't think of me as who I was on the TV show."

Are you excited for Miley's new music? We know we are!
