Mariah Carey has revealed the full details for her upcoming and long-delayed new studio album.
Previously titled The Art of Letting Go, the new album will now be called Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse and has a US release date of 27th May (we expect it’ll be out on 26th May in the UK). The news was revealed on Mariah’s Facebook page along with the covers of the Standard and Deluxe Editions of the album.
The reveal was accompanied by a short video explaining the meaning behind the title which comes from a drawing Mariah did when she was just three year’s old. You can see the video at the bottom of this page.
Mariah has also revealed the track listing for the album:
3. Dedicated (feat. Nas)
4. #Beautiful (feat. Miguel)
6. Make It Look Good
7. You’re Mine (Eternal)
8. You Don’t Know What To Do (feat. Wale)
