Mariah Carey has been busy playing judge on “American Idol,” but she gets back to her first love, music. The big-voiced diva soars once more on “Almost Home,” the new single from Disney’s fantasy adventure film Oz The Great and Powerful, hitting theaters March 8.
Mimi belts out empowering lyrics on the triumphant tune, which she produced with Stargate and penned with Simone Porter, Justin Gray, Lindsey Ray, Tor Erik Hermansen, and Mikkel Eriksen.
“‘Almost Home’ has a message that works beautifully with the film,” said Mariah. “It’s a feel-good record, evoking the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love.”
David LaChapelle, who previously directed Mariah’s video for “Loverboy” and photographed her album covers, will helm the upcoming video.
The full song hits iTunes on Tuesday, February 19. Whet your appetite with a 30-second snippet below.
