The comprehensive greatest-hits package will arrive in stores May 22nd in Australia and includes the brand-new selection title track, -Infinity' set to premiere globally on April 27th.
Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity reunites Carey with Epic chairman-CEO Antonio 'L.A." Reid who helped spearhead Carey's mid-2000's comeback with The Emancipation of Mimi.
'I couldn't be more thrilled to be back together again with Mariah," said Mr. Reid. 'There is really no one who comes close to Mariah as both a songwriter and a singer, and as the world knows, her vocal range is legendary and truly incomparable. Her music is indelibly etched into our culture, and she's shattered so many chart records that she's now firmly entrenched in the history books. With a fierce and loyal fan base that covers every corner of the globe, I have no doubt Mariah will do it again."
