NEW YORK (M. Carey Fans Website) - Mariah Carey
covers Def Leppard's 1980s song "Bringin' On The Heartbreak
" on her upcoming album, Charmbracelet.
Carey was 11 years old when the song first came out, featured on Def Leppard's 1981 album, High And Dry. It was also included on the band's 1995 greatest hits set, Vault. The new cover version is done rock-ballad style, and boasts a guitar solo by musician Rob Bacon.
Other tracks on Carey's album include the current advance single "Through The Rain," and "My Saving Grace." In another song, the title of which has not been anounced, the half-Irish, half-Puerto Rican pop star sings a line sure to draw attention: "I was stigmatized for being black and white."
Justin Timberlake's vocals have reportedly been added to one of the numbers as well, to create a duet.
Charmbracelet arrives December 10 in stores, on Island-Def Jam MonarC Music.
