Mariah Carey's new single "Almost Home" is now available at iTunes and all digital providers. The song is from the upcoming Disney film Oz the Great and Powerful, which hits theaters March 8. The movie, starring James Franco, is a prequel to the classic movie The Wizard of Oz.
The video for song will be directed by David LaChapelle, who previously created Mariah's video for "Loverboy." Mariah said of "Almost Home," "It’s a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love."
With lyrics like "Where you're almost there/and you're almost home/Just open up your eyes and go/you know you're not alone/you're almost home," the single almost sounds custom-made to be the soundtrack for that moment when contestants get voted off of American Idol. Perhaps that's no coincidence.
