Listen to Home from the new CD Release Me

Among the more anticipated tracks on Barbra Streisand's upcoming album Release Me is "Home," her soaring, up-tempo take on the anthem from the musical The Wiz.

"...while listening to her powerful 25-year-old vocals on the track, Streisand decided to re-record the bass, drums, and piano in order to fully realize the potential of the more uptempo arrangement of the popular standard, which serves as a sort of answer to "(Somewhere) Over the Rainbow" from The Wizard of Oz, the source material for the 1974 musical. Streisand, a noted perfectionist, even enlisted the same three musicians who had played on the original session for the song to maintain continuity."
