Mariah Covers Foreigner on New Single

Mariah Carey is entering foreign territory with her new single.

The diva will release “I Want to Know What Love Is” as the next single off Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. The song is a cover of the 1984 hit by British-American rock band Foreigner.

SHOWBIZ 411’s Roger Friedman offered praise after getting a sneak peek at the album. “Mariah’s got a hit on her hands along the lines of Emancipation of Mimi,” he wrote. “The hour-long CD is ballad-centric. Written and produced with The-Dream and Tricky [Stewart], Memoirs boasts a lot of singles.”

Carey will release her twelfth studio album on September 29 featuring the tracks “Betcha,” “Obsessed,” “H.A.T.E.U.,” “Candy Bling,” “Ribbon,” “Standing Os,” “Impossible,” “It’s a Wrap,” “Inseparable,” “Up Out My Face,” “More Than Just Friends,” and “Angels Cry.”
