The Bikini Kill singer says she has an idea for an album that only Cyrus is 'daring enough to make'
Riot grrrl icon Kathleen Hanna has offered Miley Cyrus an idea for an album collaboration.
The former frontwoman of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre and current frontwoman of The Julie Ruin reached out to Cyrus on Twitter after the pop singer posted pictures of Hanna in her Bikini Kill days on Instagram last week, reports Pitchfork.
“Hey @MileyCyrus so sweet you posted pics of me…have an idea for an album that only you are daring enough to make,” wrote Hanna. At the time of writing, Cyrus is yet to respond publicly to Hanna’s request.

The Julie Ruin recently had to cancel their European dates as Hanna suffered a relapse of Lyme disease. Hanna has suffered from the chronic condition since 2005, leaving Le Tigre that year because of health issues that were later diagnosed as caused by the condition. All summer shows were pulled as Hanna underwent a three-month course of treatment for the debilitating illness.
The Julie Ruin released their debut album ‘Run Fast’ in 2013. Hanna wrote a blog post for NME.COM last year in which she discussed the controversy surrounding Default Genders – her musical project with James Brooks – and their song ‘On Fraternity’. The track seemingly imagines the threat of rape on the street from a woman’s perspective.
