There's no place like home, well except maybe almost home.

Mariah Carey's newest single, "Almost Home," will be heard as part of the soundtrack for Disney's upcoming "Oz The Great and Powerful," directed by Sam Raimi

The Grammy winner and "American Idol" judge will team with photographer/director David LaChapelle, who has previously worked with Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera, for the music video. He previously helm the video for Carey's "Loverboy," featuring Da Brat and Ludacris.

LaChapelle describes the song as “a duet between Mariah and the movie.”  

Disney, Carey and her label will soon launch a promotional campaign tying together the single, the video and the film, which stars James Franco, Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams.
"‘Almost Home’ has a message that works beautifully with the film," Carey said in a press release. "It’s a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love."

The single will be released by Island Def Jam, on February 19.
