Mariah Carey is almost home. The diva and American Idol judge has recorded the song, "Almost Home," for Oz the Great and Powerful, which is Disney's much-anticipated fantastical adventure, directed by Sam Raimi, releasing in theaters nationwide on March 8, 2013.
"Almost Home" will be released as a single by Carey's label, Island Def Jam, on February 19, 2013.
Award-winning photographer/director David LaChapelle will direct Carey in the music video for "Almost Home." The two long-time collaborators are reuniting in what LaChapelle describes as "a duet between Mariah and the movie." Now, that is faboo.
LaChapelle photographed Carey previously for album covers, and directed her in the music video "Loverboy." Disney, Carey and Island Def Jam plan to launch a promotional campaign to support the single, the video and the film.
"'Almost Home' has a message that works beautifully with the film," Mariah Carey says of the song she co-wrote and co-produced for Oz the Great and Powerful. "It's a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love."
