Mariah Carey Debuts New Song, ‘Almost Home’
The Stargate-produced track features marching drums, dramatic piano chords and echoic synths. The song has potential to shine on pop radio and inspire Mariah’s faithful fans, whom she affectionately calls her “lambs.”
The song, which pays homage to the main character Dorothy, has everything you want in a Mariah Carey tune — uplifting lyrics, soaring productions and her impressive vocal displays at the end.
“When you’re almost there / And you’re almost home / Just open up your eyes and go / When you’re almost there, almost home / You know you’re not alone / You’re almost home,” she sings on the chorus.
A video for the song is being shot and will premiere next month. The clip is being directed by photographer David LaChapelle, who has shot Mimi’s album covers and the video for her 2001 song, ‘Loverboy.’
The Sam Raimi-directed ‘Oz the Great and Powerful,’ which is described as a prequel to the classic film ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ will open in theaters March 8.
