Dan Snaith aka Caribou has today shared a new track ‘Home’. The track is 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 the likes of The Guardian, NME, Mixmag and Loud & Quiet. Snaith has also announced the first UK tour dates since Our Love which include a show at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse in spring next year (full list of dates below).

Speaking of the new 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.”
