Dan Snaith shares his first new track in 5 years, “Home” below!
The track comes as his first new music in five years since the release of Our Love – his universally adored sixth album which received critical acclaim including top five positions in ‘End of Year’ lists from multitudes of media around the world. Snaith also announces the first tour dates since Our Love with shows scheduled in North America and Europe.
Speaking of the track, Snaith says: “I’m always listening to lots of music and sometimes a loop just jumps out at me – it’s too perfect. That’s how it was with Gloria Barnes’ ‘Home’ – I kept returning to it, meaning to do something with it but not knowing what. Sometimes making music feels like a process I’m in charge of … but there are other times when things just present themselves and my job is to follow their lead. It wasn’t until the circumstances of someone close to me mirrored the refrain of the original song that the track all came together.
“When I’ve played it to friends, several of them have said that they feel like it’s speaking to their circumstances, about people close to them. We’ve all had moments when something changes suddenly and catalyses a change in your whole life – when you need to go back to something familiar, pick up the pieces and start again.”
