Mariah Carey's 1994 album 'Merry Christmas' remains one of the biggest selling seasonal albums of all time, with more than 12 million copies sold throughout the world. And in the 16 years since, we've not really been able to pop down to the local shopping centre come the twelve days of Christmas without hearing at least one of the tracks from it blaring across the PA system. So this year, Mariah is hoping that she can replicate the success of the original album with 'Merry Christmas II You', due into stores in late October.
The singer gave us all a hint of what to expect (pictured) on her official website late yesterday.
The album is reported to include six new songs, along with a remix of her 1994 hit 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'.
Given its November 02 US instore date, it's anticipated it'll be hitting the shops down under on Friday October 29.
UPDATE : Monday September 20 - Universal's release schedule has the album dropping locally on Friday November 05.
