Miley strips down for Wrecking Ball

Miley Cyrus appears nude in her new music video.

The 20-year-old singer released the three-and-a-half minute clip for Wrecking Ball on Monday.

The video opens with a close-up of Miley singing the lyrics and then shows her seductively holding a sledgehammer while wearing a white crop top, underwear and boots.

A wrecking ball blasts through a wall behind her in slow motion as she walks toward the camera and moments later Miley swings on top of the apparatus, first clothed and later fully nude.

Terry Richardson is credited with directing the video for Miley's latest single, from her forthcoming album Bangerz.

Its release comes just two weeks after Miley's highly controversial performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, which saw her stripping down to flesh-toned underwear and "twerking" against Robin Thicke.

Miley defended the performance last week, insisting critics are over-thinking her provocative displays.

"I don't pay attention to the negative because I've seen this play out, how many times have we seen this play out in pop music?" she asked MTV.

The singer also garnered controversy for performing her single We Can't Stop with a band of little people on the German TV show Schlag den Raab on Saturday.

Miley is meanwhile preparing to make a splash as host and musical guest of Saturday Night Live on October 5, two years after making her debut on the US sketch comedy show.

Bangerz is scheduled for release October 4.
