Miley Cyrus has given fans a good look at her engagement ring on the cover of her new single.

The former Disney star is set to release new song Malibu on Friday, and on Thursday showed her 65.8m Instagram followers its cover ahead of its release.

Cyrus (24) recently revealed that she and old flame Liam Hemsworth had rekindled their romance, and the pair have since become engaged.

Unsurprisingly, the singer's engagement ring is quite a sparkler with a large diamond at the centre of the halo style.

The picture, shot by her fiancé, is a far-cry from Cyrus' previous image, consisting of nipple-tassels and barely-there outfits, as she lies on the grass in a soft-knit jumper with pared-back hair and makeup.

Speaking to Billboard Magazine in an interview published earlier this month, Cyrus said she wanted to be "super clear and sharp" and focus on a new collection of songs that takes her back to her country music roots.

"I haven't smoked weed in three weeks, which is the longest I've ever [gone without it]. I'm not doing drugs, I'm not drinking, I'm completely clean right now! That was just something that I wanted to do," Cyrus said.

Cyrus, who rose to fame on the Disney Channel show "Hannah Montana," ditched her innocent image in 2013, admitting to drug use and appearing scantily clad in public and in music videos.

She grabbed headlines when she dressed in latex lingerie and twerked on stage with R&B singer Robin Thicke at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, in a performance that landed her the title of pop music's bad girl.

Her upcoming new album will feature more acoustic songs and melodies written by Cyrus, and will include a song for Hillary Clinton, whom she supported in last year's U.S. presidential election, and another anthem dedicated to women in the workplace, Billboard said.
