Earlier this morning, Miley Cyrus
announced her sixth album, Younger Now,
is set to drop on September 29th through a post on her website. According to her father, this album is Miley's return to her roots. In recent years, Miley has strayed very
far from those roots, so it might be a bit hard to remember exactly what it is she's getting back to. But as she (okay, technically Hannah Montana) said, "You can always find your way back home." This timeline through Miley's career will serve as your travel itinerary for the journey back to those roots.
