Mariah Carey is speaking out and not about a good thing. According to Digital Spy, the singer was answering fan questions for the premiere of her new single “The Art of Letting Go” when she later realized that an earlier version of the track was posted online instead. "A mistake was made by a brand new sound engineer whose only task was to press the space bar and upload the song to Facebook, while my team, and an incredible group of people from Facebook, partied while listening to the properly mixed and mastered version of 'The Art of Letting Go' on repeat from my iPod on my home speakers," she posted on Facebook when she posted the newer version of the track. She continued by saying, "Clearly, I was focused on answering your questions during the Q&A. There was no reason for me to wonder if the final mix we were listening to in that room together was different than what you were listening to!" Carey went on by saying that although the changes were very minor, they were still important to her as she worked hard on it and she wanted her fans to experience the true finished product. "There's no doubt in my mind that this sounds like a self absorbed diva on a 'woe-is-me' tangent about a couple of ad libs or some other triviality, but the reality is this is me, focusing solely on the record, wanting you to hear it and experience it the right way," she continued. The version released on iTunes was the correct version while the version posted on Facebook contained the earlier mix. 'The Art of Letting Go' is Carey's latest single from her upcoming album which is set to be released in 2014.
