Mariah Carey returns with new song 'GTFO' ahead of album release later this year
The new song is a tempting first helping from Mariah Carey's upcoming new album, which is due out later this year.
Mariah Carey, the multiple Grammy award-winning singer, dropped the first song 'GTFO' from her forthcoming album on Thursday morning. It is a soft-sounding slow jam song with an NSFW title.
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 the 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.
“I wanted to give my fans and everyone a first listen that wasn’t so serious,” says Mariah. “I’ve had so much fun making this album, and I wanted the first moment to reflect that light-hearted spirit."
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 new music video for the song will be released tomorrow, September 14.
The clip is directed by Sarah McColgan (Kelly Clarkson, Charli XCX). Her official single, 'With You,' seductively sets the stage for Mariah’s eagerly anticipated album coming later in 2018. The singer is also currently putting final touches to her upcoming album.
The news of the brand new songs follows Mariah’s recent Las Vegas residency, 'The Butterfly Returns,' which wrapped at the Colosseum in Caesar’s Palace on September 10. She will be performing at the eighth annual iHeartRadio Music Festival at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena on September 21.
A range of unique promotional ventures is in the works for the singer during fall, surrounding 'With You' release and subsequent video, with more surprises in store for fans to close out the year. Mariah has also announced plans to continue ‘The Butterfly Returns’ headlining show at the Colosseum in Caesar’s Palace in February of 2019.
