"Memoirs of an imperfect angel is Mariah's twelfth studio album. It was released on September 24 in Europe. In early 2009, singer-songwriter The-Dream stated that he and Carey had already begun working on her next studio album: "I think it's about just writing an album that includes the focus of all the hits that she's had. She can't take a loss; she has to do everything to the T. So it's basically like we're trying to make a greatest hits album without using the greatest hits."

In February 2009, The-Dream said in an interview with MySpace that he and Carey finished seven songs for the album. In March 2009, Mariah wrote on Twitter that she finished working on two songs with James "Big Jim" Wright and Christopher "Tricky" Stewart. That same month, Bryan-Michael Cox and Jermaine Dupri said in their posts on Twitter that they worked on a song for Carey called "100 Percent." It will be the theme song for Mariah's upcoming movie Precious. In May 2009, Mariah also stated on Twitter that she worked with Timbaland.

The New York Post reported that Mariah covered Foreigner's "I want to know what love is" for her new album. On May 20, she announced on her Twitter page the title of her new album, "Memoirs of an imperfect angel". That same day, L.A. Reid played a song from the album titled "H.A.T.E.U." during an Island Def Jam Event. On June 4, 2009 while speaking with Extra at the Fresh Air Fund gala, Mariah said that she has to finish the album "in like a week".

A sticker for the Soft Pak Deluxe Limited Edition CD that says "includes exclusive Elle magazine booklet" is attached to the standard jewel CD case but the said booklet is not found inside the CD case. Another odd thing is the text/print on the CD that circles it where it says where the CD was manufactured and printed (in the Philippines) shows the catalogue number 060252720462 (which is for the deluxe limited edition CD). But at the back non-playable portion of the CD (near the hole) where it shows the IFPI number and the Universal logo, the catalogue number 060252716488 is also present.
