If you’ve been following Mariah Carey on Instagram, then you already know she’s hard at work on her new album.
Mariah spoke with People magazine and shared a little bit about what we can expect from the project.
“I’ve been working on my new album for a while. This is a labor of love and I’m really excited,” the superstar — who is extending her “The Butterfly Returns” residency at Caesars Palace into 2019 with new dates in February — tells PEOPLE exclusively. “This is me at this moment in my life being able to express myself as a writer and a singer. I’m just really in a good place.”
While her album will feel “current,” the singer insists she’s not trying to follow “anybody else’s trends.”
“My fans just want to hear me express myself and speak from the heart and sing from the heart,” says Carey. “Some of the record is lighthearted and fun, and some [songs] I really went deep in terms of the lyrical content. There’s a nice cross-section of things.”
We can’t wait to hear what she’s been working on!
