Trending Now

Dan Snaith AKA Caribou has released a new single called “Home” – his first new material since acclaimed 2014 album Our Love.

“Home” is based around a hefty sample of a song of the same name by obscure soul singer Gloria Barnes, from her highly sought-after 1971 album Uptown. Hear Caribou’s take on it below:

“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’,” says Snaith. “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.”
