Fans can look forward to a new album from the "Always Be My Baby" singer. 

Mariah Carey may have dealt with a series of high-profile incidents in the past few months (from her called-off nuptials to the New Years Eve debacle), but it hasn't stopped the singer from making music.

On Monday, it was announced that MC signed a fresh deal with Sony Music Entertainment for an album due this year.

As reported by Variety, Carey launched her career at Sony’s Columbia Records in 1990, when she scored the first of her five consecutive Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hits ( “Vision of Love,” “Love Takes Time,” “Someday,” “I Don’t Wanna Cry,” and “Emotions”).

“I am putting my heart and soul into making more new music," Carey said in a statement. "I am so thrilled for this next chapter and to continue working with, and for, everyone that I love.”

In addition to having a residency at Las Vegas' Colosseum at Caesars Palace, the "We Belong Together" singer had an E! channel docuseries last winter. Her world tour with Lionel Richie was postponed due to Richie's knee surgery recovery.
