The new Miley Cyrus album, The Time of Our Lives on Hollywood Records, will be released Aug. 31, 2009, exclusively at Walmart stores and Walmart.com. With an $8 retail price, the offering will have seven tracks – including the single “Party In The USA,” which debuted this week at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 following three consecutive weeks as the No. 1 most added song at Top 40 Radio. The song is currently the most downloaded MP3 on Walmart.com.
In addition, Cyrus and fashion designer Max Azria of BCBGMAXAZRIAGROUP, Inc. have teamed up to create a new apparel line which launched this month exclusively in Walmart stores and online at Walmart.com. Walmart is also the sponsor of the Miley Cyrus North American Tour.
“Party In The USA” has sold over 225,000 units. It is the highest debut by a female solo artist since Carrie Underwood’s “Inside Your Heaven” (in July of 2005.)
Miley is scheduled to perform the hit on The Today Show August 28. She is currently filming the new drama based on a book by romantic novelist Nicolas Sparks called The Last Song and will embark on a 45-city North American tour beginning in September.
