Mariah Confirms New Album Title + Release Date
Mariah Carey fans rejoice! Earlier today she finally revealed the title, covers and release date of her upcoming fourteenth studio album!
The ‘Hero‘ singer uploaded a video on her YouTube channel announcing the title ‘Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse‘.
The unique title comes from a drawing Mariah drew of herself when she was just 3 years old and ever since then that image and writing has played a special part in defining who she is throughout of her life, the image will also be featured on the back cover of the album!
She also states that the word ‘Elusive Chanteuse’ is the nickname her nearest and dearest have been calling her as of late and it deemed fitting enough to be placed alongside the ‘Me. I Am Mariah’ title.
The album cover sees Mariah standing in a pose somewhat similar to her 2005 best seller ‘The Emancipation of Mimi‘, with added emphasis on the albums title. The deluxe edition cover sees a close up shot of Mimi in the same background as featured on the standard edition.
