Listen to Mariah Carey’s New Lauryn Hill Collaboration ‘Save the Day’

    A few days ago, Mariah Carey announced The Rarities, a new collection of B-sides, unreleased songs, and live recordings from the pop singer’s three-decade-long career. Now, she’s previewed the 15-track LP with a new song called ‘Save the Day’, which samples Lauryn Hill’s vocals from the Fugees’ ‘Killing Me Softly With His Song’. Listen to it below.

    The new collection will coincide with the publication of a new memoir called The Meaning Of Mariah Carey, arriving at the end of September. “It took me a lifetime to have the courage and the clarity to write my memoir,” Carey wrote in a statement upon its announcement. “I want to tell the story of the moments — the ups and downs, the triumphs and traumas, the debacles and dreams, that contributed to the person I am today.”

    Speaking about its connection to the album, she told Good Morning America: “The cool thing about this project is that there are songs that I talk about writing or recording even as a little kid until now that I found in the vault, and so we’re kind of putting this out at the same time.”

    The Rarities is set for release on October 2nd via Sony.
