Miley Cyrus – Breakout Album

On July 22, 2008, Miley Cyrus’ new CD, Breakout, was released by Hollywood Records – a subsidiary of the Walt Disney Corporation. The CD includes 10 original songs, 1 remix and 1 remake, with a length of 40 minutes.

#1) Breakout
#2) 7 Things
#3) The Driveway
#4) Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
#5) Full Circle
#6) Fly on the Wall
#7) Bottom of the Ocean
#8) Wake Up America
#9) These Four Walls
#10) Simple Song
#11) Goodbye
#12) See You Again (Rock Mafia Remix)

Miley’s remake of Cindy Lauper’s Girls Just Wanna Have Fun is true to the original lyrics and beat with a slightly faster tempo. The song is fun and energetic.

The remix of See You Again is much slower than the original, with the addition of more drum beats.

According to iTunes, the three most popular songs on the CD are Breakout, 7 Things and Fly on the Wall – the three most fast-paced songs on the album.

The rest of the album has a much slower pace than any of her other CDs. The songs have a more grown up sound, but include the same teen pop lyrics Miley is popular for.

It seems that Miley is using this album to break away from her Hannah Montana image. Similarly, Disney is slowly pushing Miley away. Most Disney shows only last three seasons with the exception of That’s So Raven. Disney will probably make another exception with Hannah Montana – but after a while Miley will grow too old for Disney.

Interestingly, Miley’s first album, Hannah Montana, was put out by Walt Disney Records, while her second album, Hannah Montana 2 – Meet Miley Cyrus, was released by Disney and Hollywood Records together, and her latest CD, Breakout, was released by Hollywood Records alone. It will be interesting to see which recording company releases her next album.
