Mariah Carey, a legend in the world of pop music, has dropped hints that she may finally release the grunge album that she has been working on since the 1990s.
The “Songbird Supreme” revealed the original version of a grunge album from 1995 that she stated “will be released soon” during an episode of the Rolling Stone Music Now podcast. She revealed to Rolling Stone that she had discovered the original version of the song, which featured her own lead vocals, and that she intended to release it after making some minor adjustments.
The secret album, which was released in 1995 under the band name Chick and was titled Someone’s Ugly Daughter, was first mentioned in Mariah Carey’s upcoming memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey, which is set to be released in 2020. She participated in the recording process by singing uncredited backup vocals. It would appear that bands like Hole and Green Day were the source of inspiration for the album.
The singer, who is 53 years old, was quoted as saying, “I think this unearthed version will become something we should hear.” In addition to that, she dropped hints that she is collaborating with another artist on this project.
The artist who won a Grammy explains in the interview that she “had no freedom” in the 1990s and that the album was a way for her to let off steam and relieve stress. Despite this, Mariah revealed that she has been criticized for the grunge lyrics she has released.
During the course of the podcast episode, she shared her sentiments, stating, “I honestly wanted to put it out under the same pseudonym and be like, you know, whatever, let them discover that it’s me.” However, that concept was shot down.
