The singer revealed that she is eager to return to music, but wants the lead single from her new album to contain the right message.
"I'm thinking hopefully November for a single," Cyrus told Rolling Stone. "It's just whenever we feel we've got that [song] we feel really confident in being the first single.
"I've got songs right now I feel like could potentially be singles, [but] it's been two years that I haven't said anything, and I want that to be the right thing we say."
Cyrus admitted that part of her new record was influenced by Motown music after she spent a couple of months in New Orleans while her fiancé Liam Hemsworth shot a movie.
"My boyfriend was filming a movie in New Orleans, so I got into the older Motown sound vibe, which is really fun to mix with this country pop sound," she explained.
"I listened to a lot of Irma Thomas and tried to get that old soul into it, too."
She added: "When you're making a record you never think of what weird direction you're going to go, but that was something that popped up in a few of the sessions we've been working on, and it's been really fun."
Cyrus recently claimed that she feels like she loves everyone more than they love her during a Twitter chat with fans.
