Mariah Carey surprised fans on Twitter yesterday (June 5) by announcing the release date of her new album. This will be the singer’s 13th release.
It wasn’t a flashy announcement. Instead Carey’s tweet stuck to the facts, only revealing the release date of her upcoming record.

Her label, Island Def Jam, has confirmed that Carey’s album will be out July 23. No word yet on the title of the album.
Carey’s already gotten fans excited for her follow-up to 2009’s Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel — her most recent full-length album of original material — with the Miguel-assisted single “#Beautiful.” Watch the video below.
Her album announcement comes one week after the singer revealed she would not be returning to American Idol next year.
