Cyrus also Instagramed a picture of the Bangerz cover sitting in what appears to be her seat at Brooklyn's Barclays Center where the MTV Video Music Awards are set to take place Sunday night (August 25). She is scheduled to perform.
The Bangerz cover features Miley in red lipstick and a black ensemble set atop a peach-to-purple background reminiscent of '80s TV staple Miami Vice over which snapshots of palm trees are lit up by a neon sign reading Bangerz. The album is set to arrive on October 8.
The word "Bangerz" became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter after she tweeted the image.
Bangerz single "We Can't Stop" is currently No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.
