Earlier this month Mariah Carey announced that she would be releasing a new album next month on July 23. Shortly thereafter, it appeared that WalMart inadvertently announced the title of Mimi‘s upcoming new album … information that she seemed to confirm after the album title leak took place. Last night, Mariah posted a couple of tweets on her official Twitter profile that appear to inform fans that she has decided to delay the release of the album so that she can do it “justice” so as not to exclude songs that she wants to release but, apparently, aren’t quite ready yet. Click below to read Mimi‘s tweet messages to fans about the delay of her forthcoming album.
While making this album, I got so immersed in the creative process that I just don’t feel I would be doing it justice to release it on 7/23. / I’d rather not exclude meaningful songs. I want to give you this album as it’s meant to be heard.When I’m ready, you’ll be the first 2 know!
BOOOO! I mean, I get MC‘s desire to make sure that her album is absolutely perfect before she releases it but it’s kinda cruel to give fans a release date and then yank the rug out from under them by delaying the album. It sounds to me like Mariah has cooked up one, two or more “meaningful songs” that she deffo wants to release to fans so … I guess we’ll just have to wait a bit longer to get the album. Hopefully the delay won’t be too long … I can wait a few more months, I don’t think I can wait until next year, tho. It’s possible that Mimi might also change the title of her new album The Art of Letting Go to something else. I can’t say I’m crazy about this title so if she’s gonna delay the album, maybe she’ll change the title as well. Mimi promises to let us be the first to know when a new album release date is announced so … stay tuned.
