Mariah Carey sings song for Oz: The Great and Powerful

Recently, “Almost Home” was released online, the new song from Mariah Carey which will be featured on the Oz The Great and Powerful soundtrack. Give it a listen!

So, what do you think? Personally, I am in love! Such a catchy beat and not the usual sound for Mariah. I will be definitely purchasing this tune!

Walt Disney Records will release the digital original motion picture soundtrack for “Oz The Great and Powerful” on March 5, 2012. Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman reunites with director Sam Raimi for “Oz The Great and Powerful” after composing original scores for the filmmaker’s blockbuster hits “Spider-Man,” “Spider-Man 2,” “Darkman” and “A Simple Plan.”

Elfman said, “I didn’t really go in with any sense of what I wanted to do other than just to follow the film. It was incredibly clear because the characters and what they were doing, and what their quests were, and what needed to be done, were all laid out, so I fell into it very easily.” Elfman employed a traditional orchestra for the film to give the music a classic feel. He relates, “Sam did want a very strong, traditional feel to this movie. I think there has always been the feeling that we’d like to try to give it a classic feel and a timelessness.”

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times Raimi said, “Danny has a grand arsenal of musical abilities. He’s able to create a sweeping gigantic sound that can really describe a tremendous scale and help us create this very unique world that Frank Baum wrote about, the land of Oz.”

The latest TV spot with the 10 day countdown is below the cut:

  1. As part of an ongoing deal with Disney, the Intrada label is releasing a physical CD of Elfman’s score next week. It will mainly be sold directly through their website.

    They did the same thing for The Avengers last year. With that one, the CD contained more music than the digital release. Haven’t heard if the same is true with this one.

  2. Eh, it’s too modern sounding to me for a turn-of-the-century fairytale. Hopefully this isn’t a precedent for what the rest of the soundtrack for the film will sound like.
