Mariah Carey sure knows how to make an announcement. The pop superstar ended 2013 with a bang: an album release date teaser and the pronunciation of a new single.
Carey appeared on NBC's New Year's Eve With Carson Daly, performing a variety of tracks. Before performing her latest single "The Art Of Letting Go" and after giving some love advice for the new year, she shared some exciting news with fans watching her live and on TV.
"The album is coming this spring. New single, Valentine's Day!" Carey said before performing The Art of Letting Go's second single and title track.
Watch the video announcement and "The Art of Letting Go" performance below, via Idolator:
The yet-to-be named track with be the third single from The Art of Letting Go. "#Beautiful" and "The Art of Letting Go" are the record's first two promotional tracks.
The Art of Letting Go's tentative spring 2014 release date comes after the singer's 14th studio album has faced multiple delays. Carey has been teasing the album since 2012, and the record's first single "#Beautiful" (featuring Miguel) was released in May 2013. The Art of Letting Go was originally scheduled for a July 23, 2013, release but a month before that date, Carey announced the effort was indefinitely postponed.
So, keep fingers crossed for spring 2014.
The Art of Letting Go will be Carey's first studio album since 2010's Merry Christmas II You. Her last full album of original songs, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel was released in September 2009.
