Mariah Carey says her new tunes sound “current,” but won’t follow “anybody else’s trends.”
“I’ve been working on my new album for a while. This is a labor of love and I’m really excited,” Mariah told People.
“This is me at this moment in my life being able to express myself as a writer and a singer. I’m just really in a good place.”
“My fans just want to hear me express myself and speak from the heart and sing from the heart,” she continued. “Some of the record is lighthearted and fun, and some [songs] I really went deep in terms of the lyrical content. There’s a nice cross-section of things.”
I Am The Emancipated Elusive Chanteuse is coming.
UPDATE // AUGUST 21:
Mariah Carey Ditched The VMAs To Work On Her New Album
Smart choice. Mariah decided to skip the VMAs and work on her forthcoming album.
The pop star posted a photo of her in the recording studio, and she looks truly happy. Much happier than a flop red carpet teehee.
It’s a good day! Queen Mimi is cooking up new tunes for us. What else can we ask for? Besides justice for Glory…
It’s a fresh start for the Elusive Chanteuse. Mariah signed with Roc Nation and refreshed her management team. So far so good! The singer redeemed herself with a soaring performance on New Year’s Eve and now is readying new music.
“Missed my 2nd home,” Mariah wrote on Instagram. “Feels good to be back #StudioTime.” She also included this slightly upsetting hashtag: #GettingStarted. I don’t know about you, but I’m reading that as just now getting started on new music. You can understand why that’s problematic.
I guess great things take time. Just hopefully not too long.
