Mariah Carey has recorded a song for Disney’s “Oz The Great and Powerful.”

The song – “Almost Home” – will drop as a single on Island Def Jam on February 19.

“‘Almost Home’ has a message that works beautifully with the film,” Mariah said in a statement, about the song, which she co-wrote and co-produced for the film. “It’s a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love.”

A video will also be made, shot by famed photographer David LaChapelle.

LaChapelle called it, “a duet between Mariah and the movie.”
