Miley Cyrus closed out the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday with a surprise performance alongside Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, and announced her new album, Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz, was available for free online at MileyCyrusAndHerDeadPetz.com.

Featuring songs titled, “I’m So Drunk” and “Slab of Butter,” the album also contains “Pablow The Blowfish,” which she wrote earlier this year for her dead fish, and tracks with appearances from Ariel Pink, Big Sean, Sarah Barthel of Phantogram. She also pays tribute to other dead pets Floyd the dog, and her friend’s cat Twinkle.

When talking about the project in an interview with the New York Times, Cyrus revealed it cost about $50,000 to make and said that her label RCA Records “had never heard the record until it was done.” She said, “This music was not meant to be a rebellion,” she said. “It was meant to be a gift.”

Listen to the whole thing via Soundcloud.

Before announcing the album, Cyrus performed “Dooo It!” with Coyne and sang lyrics like, “Yeah I smoke pot, yeah I love peace, but I don’t give a f–k, I ain’t no hippie.”
