"Almost Home has a message that works beautifully with the film," the new Idol judge says of the song she both co-wrote and co-produced. "It's a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love."

Famed artist/photographer David LaChapelle will direct the music video, who's worked with Mariah in the past on 2001's Loverboy.
