You don't have to circle July 23 with a heart in a red Sharpie any longer, lambs. That's because Mariah Carey is no longer releasing her new album 'The Art of Letting Go' on that date. Boo! Hiss!

The singer and former 'American Idol' judge took to Twitter to inform fans that the album was being pushed back, with no firm replacement date revealed.

Mimi confessed that the creative process needs to be respected, and there are more songs she wants to include on her 14th album, so she has to hold onto it a little longer.

Interestingly, she tweeted last week about how tough it was to let go of the album. Well, it appears as though Messiah Carey is clinging to it.

In all honesty, it's best to let the diva do her thang and finish the album as she wishes. You can't rush a Rembrandt.

Below are Carey's tweets.

She also shared a photo on June 21, indicating she wasn't quite done wrapping up lyrics. She captioned the shot, featuring one of her beloved pooches: "Cha Cha still editing lyrics."

Again, it felt rushed, so it's probably best to wait it out.

Plus, we can still enjoy '#Beautiful,' her jukebox'y single with Miguel.
