This concert is a Live Nation / Le Botanique co-production.
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 tour dates since Our Love with shows in North America and Europe.
'Home' premiered today on Radio 1 as Annie Mac's 'Hottest Record in the World'. It is at once filled with trademark Caribou warmth and technicolour but also sounds like nothing he's ever produced before. The dextrous use of a sample of lost soul gem Gloria Barnes' 'Home' provides delightfully surprising twists and turns.
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 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."
