Mariah Carey was recording Daydream by day and a totally different collection around evening time during the ’90s.

In her new journal, the pop star uncovers that she took a shot at a stone collection with the band Chick around the timeframe of the Daydream sessions.

“Fun fact: I did an alternative album while I was making Daydream,” Carey composed on Twitter, where she shared a passage from her forthcoming book, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, Sunday evening (Sept. 27). “Just for laughs, but it got me through some dark days.”

“Here’s a little of what I wrote about it in #TheMeaningOfMariahCarey,” she said.

Carey included her tweet, “S/O to my friend Clarissa who performs the lead w/ me as a hidden layer.”

In the passage, she conceded, “I actually started to love the songs.”

“I would fully commit to my character,” she composed. “I was playing with the style of the breezy-grunge, punk-light white female singers who were popular at the time. You know the ones who seemed to be so carefree with their feelings and their image. They could be angry, angsty, and messy, with old shoes, wrinkled slips, and unruly eyebrows, while every move I made was so calculated and manicured. I wanted to break free, let loose, and express my misery — but I also wanted to laugh. I totally looked forward to doing my alter-ego band sessions after Daydream each night.”
