Mariah Carey delays new album release


Mariah Carey has pushed back the release of her new album in order to perfect the project.

"The Art of Letting Go" was set to hit shelves on July 23, but the pop star took to her Twitter account on Monday night to tell fans she is delaying the release. In a series of posts, she writes, "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.

"I'd rather not exclude meaningful songs," she adds. "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!"
