It’s been 25 years since Mariah Carey released her “most personal” album Butterfly.
Calling it her favorite album, Mimi celebrated the milestone with the release of an anniversary edition today (9-16).
The deluxe reissue of the 1997 LP with eight new bonus tracks left over from the original sessions.
There’s a documentary on the making of the album, plus videos for “Honey” and “The Roof (Back in Time)” now in 4K.
Carey told Variety, “When I made that album, I was leaving a point in my life that was extremely stifling and I had to go through an actual metamorphosis to become a grown woman who was strong enough to get out of that situation. It was me breaking through, to become free enough to fly.”
