Mariah Carey, Pop’s songbird supreme and now reality television favorite, has released a clip of her newest single “Almost Home” that will be hitting radio airwaves and iTunes on February 19th. (As if a four day weekend wasn’t enough cause for celebration!)
The track will be featured on Disney’s upcoming film Oz The Great and Powerful set to release on March 8th. The film is set up as a prequel to the original 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and contains an all-star cast led by James Franco and Mila Kunis. Mariah co-penned the track with Simone Porter, Justin Gray, and Lindsey Ray and had the track co-produced by Stargate (Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Eriksen).
The clip showcases Carey’s powerful spine tingling vocals without having to resort to her highly praised breathy register. This will be the multiple Grammy winner’s first release since her last album in 2009, and with over 55,000 plays on Soundcloud already, it’s safe to say Mariah has us all wishing this holiday weekend would move a lot faster!
