Mariah Carey Releases New Track 'Almost Home'

Mariah Carey has released a new track, "Almost Home," to be featured on the soundtrack for the Sam Raimi-directed Wizard of Oz reimagining, Oz the Great and Powerful. The movie stars James Franco, Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz.

"When you're almost there / And you're almost home / Just open up your eyes and go / When you're almost there / Almost home / Know you're not alone / You're almost home," Carey sings on the track.

The L.A. Times, in reviewing the Stargate-produced track, called it something of a throwback, sure to please fans of Carey's most popular songs:

". . . the midtempo song seems entirely built around Carey's vocals, which arc upward until they crest in a key change that delivers the thrill we've grown to expect from her."

The video for "Almost Home" hits March 8.
