We've been "Inspired" to be in "Malibu" with Miley Cyrus so far this year, but we've been craving even more new music from the 24-year-old pop star. Well, we won't have to wait too long for more music from Miley.

The former Hannah Montana star just announced the official release date for first full album since 2013's Bangerz.

The album, which is titled Younger Now, will drop on August 29. The "Wrecking Ball" singer made the announcement by sharing an image with the name of the album on a bedazzled black leather jacket on her website. 

Cyrus released the ballad "Malibu" back in May, and the song skyrocketed to the top 10 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. Plus, she released a studio version of a ballad that she first performed at the One Love Manchester concert. She went on to release a studio version of that track, which was titled "Inspired," this June to celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month. 

Miley told Billboard earlier this year that her new music was a way of giving the world a hug to say "we're good -- I love you." Miley's dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, has also said that this is leaning deeper into Miley's roots than she ever has before, and "for her her, this is honest."

We can't wait to hear it, Miley!
