Mariah Records "Almost Home" For Disney's "Oz The Great and Powerful"

Disney announced today that multiple GRAMMY® Award–winning superstar Mariah Carey has recorded the song, “Almost Home,” for “Oz The Great and Powerful,” the studio’s highly 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.” 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.”

“Almost Home” is performed by Mariah Carey, produced by Mariah Carey and Stargate for 45th & 3rd Music LLC, written by Simone Porter, Justin Gray, Lindsey Ray, Tor Erik Hermansen, Mikkel Eriksen and Mariah Carey. Courtesy of Island Def Jam Music Group/Universal Music Group.

The start of it sounds as if someone has messed with the pitch but as it goes on it gets better and the last minute or so is Mariah at her best. I love the song! Let's hope she makes more of this style of music and not go continue to go down the rapper, urban root. Great song.

Someone has messed with the pitch, it's been lowered.
EDIT: Oh I was listening to a YouTube upload which had the pitch lowered. The one here is legit: http://lovebscott.com/music/mariah-c...ew-music-full/

My reaction exactly. I actually think the climax chorus should have more effect on the song before it, it's really catchy and upbeat whereas the first two choruses sound somewhat boring.

Perfect showcase of the 2 things to which no other female artist in the industry can compare - her voice and her melodies.
