To promote the release of her new single Almost Home, the first from the soundtrack to Disney‘s Oz: The Great and Powerful, Mariah Carey sat down for an interview with her American Idol chum Ryan Seacrest on his radio show On Air with Ryan Seacrest to discuss the song … as well as NEW music later this year. According to Mimi, she’s been working hard on new material for her next album and she is CRAZY excited to release it all. 2013 already looks like a great year for new music so if we add a new album from Mariah Carey, my head is pretty much going to explode from happiness.
Mariah Carey has revealed that she’s hoping to release her new album “ASAP”. The singer is currently working on the follow-up to 2009′s Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel and has been collaborating with producers all over the world. “I’m really working hard,” Carey told Ryan Seacrest after being asked when fans can expect to hear new material. The star went on to joke that longtime collaborator and fellow American Idol judge Randy Jackson hasn’t shown an interest in the project. “Randy, he hasn’t even been in the studio in, like, months to hear what I have,” she revealed. “He doesn’t know every detail of this because I’ve been working with a bunch of people in secret locations.”
I am ALL for the ASAP release of Mariah‘s new album. I love that she’s all excited but nothing that I’m hearing in this interview leads me to believe that she is even close to dropping a new album of songs. I really do hope we get a new Mimi album this year and I’m hopeful we will due to her excitement level but … it’s prolly a good idea for me to not get all amped up for a new album anytime soon. Get to work, MC … your lambly needs you!
