Mariah Carey Reveals She Actually Wrote An Alternative Album At One Point
Back in 1995, Mariah Carey was in the act of producing and finishing her 5th studio album 'Daydream' , while at the same time experimenting with some different sounds and styling.
Mariah has revealed in a social media post to promote her upcoming album:
I’d bring my little alt-rock song to the band and hum a silly guitar riff. They would pick it up and we would record it immediately. It was irreverent, raw, and urgent, and the band got into it. I actually started to love some of the songs. I would fully commit to my character. I was playing with the style of the breezy-grunge, punk-light white female singers who were popular at the time. You know the ones who seemed to be so carefree with their feelings and their image. They could be angry, angsty, and messy, with old shoes, wrinkled slips, and unruly eyebrows, while every movie I made was so calculated and manicured. I wanted to break free, let loose, and express my misery — but I also wanted to laugh. totally looked forward to doing my alter-ego band sessions after Daydream each night.
Here is the actual tweet below:
I love that tried to experiment with different elements of music to help the creative process, but in all actuality do you really think Mariah Carey would have fared well in the ALT scene? You decide.
