Mariah Carey ‘Daydream’ gets first vinyl release

The disc will be available exclusively through Vinyl Me, Please

Sony is releasing the first official vinyl issue of Mariah Carey’s 1995 breakthrough album Daydream on metallic gold vinyl exclusively via Vinyl Me, Please. Leaning into hip hop sonics that compliments her incomparable range and unbeatable vocal presence, Carey effortlessly skates from instant-classic “Fantasy” to the moving-to-the-core Boyz II Men duet “One Sweet Day” to the warm upbeat R&B of “Always Be My Baby.”

No exact release date has been given, but it’s expected to ship in early September. Vinyl Me, Please is pressing the metallic gold disc on 180-gram vinyl so the variation will not be available anywhere else. It’s priced at $34.

Originally launched as a record of the month club, Vinyl Me, Please was designed to give customers a tangible and focused music experience. The service offered one record per month and was shipped alongside custom art prints and cocktail pairing recipes to encourage a full-sensory experience. Since then, the subscription-based company has grown in popularity with more than 30k members, three different subscription tracks, an online magazine, and an evolving online store that features more than 300 additional exclusive offerings. Vinyl Me, Please has quickly risen to become one of the largest vinyl retailers, thereby shifting the landscape of the modern music industry.

Today the company is focused on continuing to expand its reach and improving its core offering, while creating new and unique opportunities for members of its community to experience music more deeply.
