Mariah Carey Teases ‘Almost Home’ from ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ Soundtrack

Mariah Carey is making an actually triumphant comeback following the flop of ‘Triumphant (Get ‘Em).’ Her single for ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ has hit the web in teaser form, and it’s much more radio friendly than her last release.

The track, ‘Almost Home,’ is upbeat and more uptempo than many of Carey’s more recent tracks. “You’re almost there / And you’re not alone / You’re almost home,” Carey sings in the motivational, cheery listen. The song is the theme for the ‘Wizard of Oz’ prequel, and the press she’s been getting from ‘American Idol‘ should help bolster its publicity almost as much as the film will. (Maybe we should thank Nicki Minaj for that, too!)

“‘Almost Home’ has a message that works beautifully with the film,” Carey said about the track in a press release. “It’s a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love.”

Indeed it is, and with cheery production by Stargate, it’s almost guaranteed to be a hit.

The single will drop on Feb. 19 — this Tuesday — and the music video, directed by David LaChappelle, will feature both Carey and scenes interspliced from the film. Considering Mimi herself loves fairy tales, we’re expecting a good one.
