Multi-platinum, multiple Grammy award winning global superstar Mariah Carey (the best-selling female artist of all time with 18 Hot 100 #1 hits) returns with the first taste of her new music, “GTFO,” on Butterfly MC Records in partnership with Epic Records.
The new song is a tempting first helping from her upcoming new album, due out later this year, whetting fans’ appetites for the album’s stunning kickoff single, “With You,” scheduled for an October 5 release. Both tracks are from her upcoming 15th studio album, her first studio album since 2014. “GTFO” is produced by Grammy nominated/multiple ASCAP award winner Nineteen85, who has worked with Drake and Jordan Manswell (Daniel Caesar), among others. Mariah also shared the music video directed by Sarah McColgan (Kelly Clarkson, Charli XCX). Her official single, “With You,” which arrives on October 5, sets the stage for Mariah’s eagerly anticipated album coming later in 2018.
The announcement of the new songs, coming on the heels of her Las Vegas Residency, ‘The Butterfly Returns,’ marks the return of one of the most revered and identifiable voices in pop history. She’s also putting the finishing touches on her forthcoming album. The flurry of creative activity has turned up the buzz with her enormous social media following, heightening the unbreakable rapport between the personable star and her avid fan base which she affectionately refers to as her ‘lambily.’ “I wanted to give my fans and everyone a first listen that wasn’t so serious,” says Mariah. “I’ve had so much fun making this album, and I wanted the first moment to reflect that light-hearted spirit.”
Mariah will be performing at the eighth annual iHeartRadio Music Festival at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena on September 21. Carey has also announced plans to continue ‘The Butterfly Returns’ headlining show at the Colosseum in Caesar’s Palace in February of 2019.
