Mariah Carey Says She Worked On An Alternative Album While Recording ‘Daydream’

Published: Monday 28th Sep 2020 by Ryan

Mariah Carey was recording ‘Daydream’ during the day and a very different album by night.

Ahead of the release of her new memoir, ‘The Meaning of Mariah Carey,’ the Songbird supreme took to Twitter to share that she worked on a rock album with the band Chick at the same time she was recording ‘Daydream.’

Her words below:

“Fun fact: I did an alternative album while I was making ‘Daydream.’ Just for laughs, but it got me through some dark days.”

In the excerpt from her book she said:

“I would fully commit to my character. I was playing with the style of the breezy-grunge, punk-light white female singers who were popular at the time. You know the ones who seemed to be so carefree with their feelings and their image. They could be angry, angsty, and messy, with old shoes, wrinkled slips, and unruly eyebrows, while every move I made was so calculated and manicured. I wanted to break free, let loose, and express my misery — but I also wanted to laugh. I totally looked forward to doing my alter-ego band sessions after ‘Daydream’ each night.”

The ‘We Belong Together’ songstress has since take to Twitter again to share that she is currently searching for the version of the album with her lead vocals on it.

Needless to say we would love to hear Mimi go full-rock. How about you?

Your thoughts?

    I want to hear this! I remember her saying she was listening to Hole’s ‘Live Through This’ album around the time she recorded Daydream so I think Courtney Love is one of the female singers she’s speaking of and they’re often spotted out having dinner together.

      I’d be very curious to hear those songs with her lead vocals. Very very curious to hear her style on these rock/grunge tracks.

      It’s crazy how she kept this a secret for 25 years.

      I’m not reading any quotes from the book nor watching interviews. I want to read this book with no spoilers.
