American Idol has a new farewell theme: Idol season 4 winner Carrie Underwood‘s version of M tley Cr e‘s “Home Sweet Home.”

The song was recorded especially for the show and follows previous goodbye tunes including Daughtry‘s “Home,” Ruben Studdard‘s version of “Celebrate Me Home” and Daniel Powter‘s “Bad Day.”

Underwood’s take on the tune will debut on Wednesday”s elimination show and will be available for download on iTunes through March 16 and at retailers thereafter.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Humane Society of the United States, a favorite charity of committed vegetarian Underwood, who said in a press release, “I’ve always loved this song, and besides being very fitting for Idol, to me, the title is also very fitting with animal rescue and finding animals their own homes.” — Eileen Finan
