With her return to the Vegas strip via the aptly titled ‘The Butterfly Returns’ residency recently extended due to its popularity (click here to read), fans of pop icon Mariah Carey began worrying her long-awaited new album may have suffered a pushback as a result.
But, if a recent announcement on Amazon is anything to judge by, the project – the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Elusive Chanteuse’ – may be seeing the songbird returning to the charts a lot sooner than previously expected.
Fans went into a frenzy today when the world’s largest online retailer, Amazon, listed a new title from Carey is currently available for pre-order. The mystery project, tentatively scheduled for an October 26 release, is unnamed as of time reported.
If the listing will be eventually posted as her official new LP has yet to be determined and, given its price tag and “special edition” billing, may not be likely. But, considering the hyping the pop diva’s given the effort in every recent interview, it is likely the album will surface before her extended residency ends.
From where we stand, even if it’s solely a special event/compilation album it still serves as indication Mimi’s “on the way” and just giving #Lambs something to tide them over. Either way, we’re ready!
