Mariah Carey is set to record another Christmas album.
The 44-year-old singer has reportedly been asked by her new label Epic Records to create another collection of Yule Tide tracks in time for the holiday this year.
Her 1994 LP 'Merry Christmas' is the best-selling festive album of all-time and contains the now classic song 'All I Want for Christmas Is You'.
According to the New York Post newspaper, although Mariah is interested in the project she is yet to definitely agree to it.
Her next release will be an updated greatest hits collection comprised of 18 of her self-written number one singles and some new material, which will come out to coincide with the start of her Las Vegas residency, 'Mariah Carey No. 1s', at Caesar's Palace Hotel and Casino on May 6.
Earlier this month, it was revealed Mariah had been in the studio with her long-term collaborator Jermaine Dupri working on new tracks.
The producer posted posted a photo on Instagram with the caption "been in the studio all night with Mariah Carey", but it is not known if this music is intended for her new compilation LP.
Mariah and Jermaine's previous work together includes hit singles 'Always Be My Baby' and 'We Belong Together'.
