Set to premiere tomorrow on Itunes and Radio stations across the globe, Mariah Carey‘s brand new single ‘Almost Home’ for the movie ‘Oz The Great And Powerful’ has been leaked. Sounding totally different to anything Mariah has released within the pass 10 years ‘Almost Home’ is a solid Pop track which will give Mariah that cross over appeal she hasn’t had in years due to most of her single’s being R&B with that hip hop element too. Given that it’s a track for a movie we’re not mad that Mariah has gone back to her pop roots with this one. Check it out after the jump and be sure to purchase the single tomorrow.
This coming Tuesday, February 19th will see Mariah Carey return to radio with her brand new single ‘Almost Home’ taken from the new Disney feature ‘Oz The Great And Powerful’ which will be released in theatres on March 7th. Co-Written by Mariah Carey and Co-produced by Stargate (Rihanna – Diamonds, Rita Ora – R.I.P) The track is definitely a more Pop sound as opposed to Carey’s notable R&B influences, Which is fitting for the type of Project the song has been written for. This is not the first time Mariah has recorded for a Movie in fact back in 1998 both Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston recorded ‘When You Believe’ for the Dreamworks movie ‘The Prince Of Egypt’ The original film version of the song went on to win an Oscar at the 71st Annual Academy Awards. Does this song have the potential for best song in a movie come 2014? Listen to the snippet and find out below!
