First Listen: Mariah Carey Releases A Snippet Of Her New Song ‘Almost Home’


We’ve been getting lots of deets here and there about the upcoming Wizard Of Oz prequel, Oz The Great And Powerful. I’ve been excited for this movie since we saw the first trailer, but I had no idea that Mariah Carey was working on new music for the soundtrack. Mimi co-wrote Almost Home with Simone Porter,Justin GrayLindsey Ray and, although the full track will not be released until Tuesday, February 19, we have a little snippet today. Click inside for more!

Mariah Carey, Almost Home:


OMG, I gotta hear the full track! Sounds like I’ll be dancing a little, then tearing up a bit, then dancing again, which is all good.

After the Tuesday release of the song, Mariah will be working on a music video– which I assume will be spectacular– directed by David LaChapelle. We should have those visuals within the next couple of weeks.

How excited are y’all for new Mimi? It makes perfect sense that she’s working on music for this movie; I mean, doesn’t she kinda belong in the Wizard Of Oz prequel, lol? They should have gone ahead and given her a part in the flick, but I suppose this will work just fine.

The single drops on Tuesday! Get pumped!

    I hope the rest of the song is a little less… something. That was just a lot going on in one little snippet.

    Mimi so needs to be Glinda the good witch. I love Michelle Williams but Mimi was robbed. She was kind of born to play that role. LOL

    Shannon, who do we need to call? They need to redo this, ASAP.

    Sounds good so far. Excited for new Mimi and the movie, too! The song releases on my B-Day so that will make the day even better!
