Mariah Carey's extravagantly-titled Me. I Am Mariah...the Elusive Chanteuse, her first album since 2009, is out this week, featuring appearances from Nas, Miguel and Wale and production work from Jermaine Dupri, Q-Tip, and Bryan-Michael Cox. Also out is the latest from indie singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten, Are We There, her most adventurous album to date, with flourishes of horns, organ and expanded vocal harmonies. Do It Again teams up frequent collaborators Röyskopp and Robyn for a brief but compelling set of songs that plays to the strengths of both parties. In addition to these, look for new music from Sam Smith, Ben Frost and Owen Pallett.
