“Almost Home,” Mariah Carey’s newest song, has been released from the soundtrack of the “Oz Great an Powerful” soundtrack. This song is ideal to play over the credits of a feel good disney-esque movie. It makes me nostalgic, remembering her and Whitney Houston’s “When You Believe” from the Prince of Egypt soundtrack.
The music video of the song, to be directed by David LaChappelle, will include clips from the movie.
The song seems very appropriate for the film. It’s been a long time since a song like this has been attached to a new movie, for it is normally indie bands or top 40 artists who have lately recorded for movies. I’m thinking every soundtrack for every past Twilight movie that has had artists ranging from Taylor Swift to Paramore record songs. Thank you Mariah Carey for bringing back sweet ballads to disney films.
