Last night, a distressed Mariah Carey wrote a long apology to her fans on Facebook, revealing that a sound engineer accidentally premiered an older version of her new single, “The Art of Letting Go.” Read the entire rant here or below.
Mimi said the version initially posted to Facebook on Monday, Nov. 11 was not the final mix. “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,” Carey wrote. (Ouch. That sound engineer may be searching for a new gig today.)
Both the old and correct versions are now posted to Facebook and Carey is responding to individual fans’ comments about the tracks. The version on sale at iTunes has always been correct.
