Today, multi-platinum, multiple Grammy award-winning Mariah Carey returns with the first taste of her new music, “GTFO.”
The new song is a tempting first helping from her upcoming new album, due out later this year, whetting fans’ appetites for the album’s stunning kickoff single, “With You,” scheduled for an October 5 release. Both tracks are from her upcoming 15th studio album, her first studio album since 2014.
“GTFO” is produced by Grammy nominated/multiple ASCAP award winner Nineteen85, who has worked with Drake and Jordan Manswell (Daniel Caesar), among others. An early treat for fans, atmospheric beats abound on the new track, with Mariah finding even more nuance in her seamlessly-spun vocal repertoire, her velvety, middle-range virtuosity once again dazzling in breathy hues. The sultry track is the first serving of new music from the acclaimed singer/songwriter/producer since inking an exclusive partnership with her imprint Butterfly MC Records and Epic in the spring of 2017.
The announcement of the new songs, coming on the heels of her much-heralded Las Vegas Residency, ‘The Butterfly Returns,’ marks the impassioned return of one of the most revered and identifiable voices in pop history. She’s also putting the finishing touches on her forthcoming album.
