Mariah pushes back album release date

2013-06-26 22:47
Los Angeles - Mariah Carey has pushed back the release date of her new album.

The 43-year-old singer's 14th studio album, The Art of Letting Go, was set to debut on 23 July, but has been postponed as she doesn't feel it is ready yet.

She wrote on Twitter: "While making this album, I got so immersed in the creative process that I just don't feel I would be doing it justice to release it on 7/23 (sic).

"I'd rather not exclude meaningful songs. I want to give you this album as it's meant to be heard.When I'm ready, you'll be the first 2 know! (sic)."

'New source of inspiration'

The star's lead single #Beautiful - which features singer Miguel - has been climbing the UK charts since it was released on 6 May, but has only managed to creep up to Number 22 so far.

Touch My Body hitmaker Mariah put her music career on hold after her last album, 2009's Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, in order to start a family with husband Nick Cannon - with whom she now has two-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe - and becoming a mother has ensured she is now full of fresh ideas.

Nick said previously: "Our new family has definitely given her a great new source of inspiration and creativity."
