Set for release on October 2, the collection is comprised of previously unheard gems spanning the length and breadth of Carey’s illustrious career.
Speaking on the LP, Mimi said:
This one is for you, my fans. It’s to celebrate us, and to thank you for years of pure love and support. I am so grateful to you THE RARITIES album is out October 2 . Pre-order now.
Per its pre-order page, it’ll be a double-disc – with side 1 populated by 15 unreleased gems including a song called ‘Save The Day’ featuring Lauryn Hill.
Side 2 is a live set made up of performances from a Tokyo show and includes renditions of ‘Fantasy,’ ‘Vision of Love,’ ‘Anytime You Need A Friend,’ ‘Hero,’ ‘One Sweet Day,’ and more.
The announcement precedes the September 29 release of the diva’s eagerly awaited memoir ‘The Meaning of Mariah Carey.’
It also follows a growing list of rare gems the songbird has hatched weekly in commemoration of 30 years in the music business. She aptly christened the mission #MC30.
Suffice to say, Mimi is feeding fans in a major way. Echoing our earlier sentiments, more legendary acts of her ilk ought to take note, because this is how to generate excitement.
