Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings

The digital version of the 30th Anniversary Expanded Edition of Mariah Carey‘s third album, Music Box, is out now, and we’ve got all the details on what it includes and when the CD and vinyl will be available.

“I feel so grateful to have the ability to share this moment with you all,” Mariah writes on Instagram about the new release. “As I’m sitting here listening to the album, I’m filled with a myriad of emotions, thoughts and memories – going from sadness, to regret, joy, nostalgia, and amazement. Thank you for being here with me on this journey.”

In addition to the digital version, a limited-edition cassette version of the original album is also available now, only through Mariah’s official store and Urban Outfitters. A three-CD and four-LP version of the expanded edition with all the unreleased goodies can be preordered now from Mariah’s store, Amazon and other retailers, with a ship date of February 24, 2024.

On September 12, a mini-documentary called Making of “Dreamlover” — one of the #1 hits from the album — will premiere on Mariah’s YouTube channel. Other video content you can expect includes a Making of Music Box mini-documentary and a What’s In MC’s Music Box social media series featuring clips from Mariah.

On September 14, an animated video offering even more insight into the making of the album will debut on Mariah’s YouTube channel.

Music Box is one of the bestselling albums of all time, with more than 28 million copies sold worldwide. It produced two number-one hits, “Dreamlover” and “Hero,” plus the #3 hit “Without You,” a cover of a 1970 song by the British band Bandfinger that singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson took to #1 in 1972.
