Mariah Holiday Redux

Nov. 2: Mariah Carey releases 13th studio CD "Merry Christmas II You," a re-recording of her pristine 1994 holiday album, including a rerub of modern classic "All I Want for Christmas Is You" and four new compositions, produced by Randy Jackson, Jermaine Dupri, James Poyser and renowned Broadway composer Marc Shaiman. First single is new "Oh Santa." Let's hope Mimi doesn't futz around too much in recasting these songs (say no to overtly urban/hip-hop holiday production); they were actually pretty perfect first time around... What a beautiful album cover, eh?
