American pop singer Miley Cyrus is due to release her latest studio album on June 22, according to an announcement posted April 26 on the singer's website. The album's first single will premiere on MySpace Music on April 30 at 12pm EST.

"Can't Be Tamed" is called a "self-empowering song in which Miley asserts that she has to stay true to herself in relationships." It will begin hitting radio stations on May 3 and will be available for download on iTunes on May 18. A video for the single is also due for release.

The album will come in two versions, one of which will be a combo CD/DVD pack including never-before-seen footage from Cyrus's 2009 international tour.

The star of the television series Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus has reportedly sold more than 15 million albums worldwide. Her most recent full-length album, 2008's Breakout, topped charts in the US, Australia, and Canada, and held top ten spots in the UK, Spain, Italy, and Brazil.

Cyrus's scheduled upcoming performances include Rock in Rio in Lisbon on May 29 and Madrid on June 6, Good Morning America's Summer Concert Series in Central Park, New York and the Much Music Video Awards in Toronto on June 20, for which she will both perform and co-host. Cyrus stars in the film The Last Song, currently in theaters; she has said that she is likely to take a break from music following the release of the new album in order to focus on acting.
