Today, Disney has announced that superstar Mariah Carey has recorded a song for Disney’s upcoming Oz The Great and Powerful.
The song, called “Almost Home,” will be released as a single on February 19, 2013. Long-time collaborator David LaChapelle will direct Carey in the music video for her single. Previously, LaChapelle photographed the recording artist for various album covers and directed her music video for “Loverboy.”
Says Mariah Carey of her song, which she co-wrote and co-produced:
Almost Home has a message that works beautifully with the film. It’s a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love.
To promote the single and music video, as well as Disney’s film, Mariah Carey, LaChapelle and Carey’s record label, Island Def Jam, plan to launch a full-scale promotional campaign. Oz The Great and Powerful will debut in theaters March 8, 2013.
