It’s been a long wait, but Mariah Carey has finally confirmed her new album’s title and release date.
In an online video, Carey revealed her new album art, which features a variation of the sea-chanteuse artwork we’ve seen already and a back cover designed by herself — a self portrait, drawn at age three. She also let it be known that the album will be called Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse. And that it will officially drop on May 27, pushing back the May 6 date that was bandied about previously.
The video, below, also gives us the album’s track list. Among the songs making the cut are her hit duet with Miguel “Beautiful;” the current single “You’re Mine (Eternal); and features from Wale, Nas, Fabolous and Dem Babies a.k.a. Monroe and Moroccan.
Carey previously told Radio.com that the album was recorded in Puerto Rico and written in several locations, including New York City and Atlanta.
