Caribou (Dan Snaith) is unveiling his first new single in five years, “Home.” Snaith’s latest as Caribou features additional contributions from Colin Fisher, who performed tenor saxophone on the cut, and was arranged alongside Four Tet mastermind Kieran Hebden; a sample of Gloria Barnes’ “Home” is also included in the song’s production. The release of the aforementioned track is being coupled with news of Caribou’s next major world tour, which is scheduled to begin in March of next year and will run until the end of April.

“I’m always listening to lots of music and sometimes a loop just jumps out at me—it’s too perfect,” Dan Snaith shares in an official press statement, opening up about his new record and revealing its origins. “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,” Snaith adds. “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.”
