If you’ve been wishing for a dose of new Mariah Carey music, your wish might just be granted. The iconic superstar recently revealed in an interview with Good Morning America that she’s back in the studio, working on fresh tracks for her fans.
In the interview aired on Monday, the Grammy winner hinted, “There is new music on the horizon.” Carey, affectionately known as Mimi, gave her devoted fans, the Lambs, a glimpse into her creative process. “I’ve been working diligently for the past three, four weeks on writing new songs,” shared the “Obsessed” singer. “Yesterday we were in the studio working on something with a choir, crafting a new song,” she added, offering a tantalizing preview of her latest musical endeavor. The prospect of new music is undeniably exciting for her fans.
Mariah Carey’s last full-length album featuring all-new music was released in 2018 with “Caution,” which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album showcased collaborations with talented artists like Blood Orange, Gunna, Slick Rick, and Ty Dolla $ign.
Since then, Carey has made guest appearances on a few singles, including the popular 2022 remix of Latto’s breakout track “Big Energy” alongside DJ Khaled. Additionally, she gifted fans with the delightful holiday album “Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special” in 2020, perfectly timed with the release of her Apple TV+ special of the same name.
As the holiday season approaches, the Queen of Christmas is gearing up to spread joy on her Merry Christmas One and All! tour. The tour, consisting of 13 dates, kicks off on November 15 in Highland, California. Carey will enchant audiences in major cities such as Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago, and New York City, performing a mix of fan-favorite originals and cherished Christmas classics.
This tour comes after several years of memorable TV specials and one-off concerts, including last year’s festive show at Madison Square Garden, which was transformed into the TV extravaganza “Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas To All!” for CBS and Paramount+. The celebrated “Touch My Body” singer last celebrated her favorite holiday on the road when her timeless hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You” marked its 25th anniversary.
Carey, renowned for her festive spirit, kicked off the Christmas countdown on social media last week. In a delightful video, the date changed from October 31 to November 1, revealing the singer encased in a block of ice. With her popular holiday anthem playing in the background, she broke free, announcing, “It’s time!” in her signature high-pitched voice. The heartwarming clip featured her playful interactions with her 12-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, whom she shares with ex-husband Nick Cannon.
