Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Mariah Carey‘s Butterfly with the release of a collector’s edition 12″ vinyl picture disc–featuring the album’s iconic original cover photo and a special note from Mariah to her fans–on Friday, October 20. The album is available for pre-order now here!

Butterfly is my favorite album,” says Mariah. “It’s the most personal work I’ve ever done and will always be a defining moment in my career and in my life. I’m so happy to celebrate this anniversary with such a special release! Stay tuned for more surprises!

At the time of Butterfly‘s release, Mariah Carey was already the biggest-selling female artist of the decade, having sold more than 80 million records since her debut in 1990. “Honey,” the album’s first single, became an instant hit on multiple genres on radio and across the world with the release of the music video.
