Having spent the last few years reviving his Daphni moniker with a series of new releases, producer Dan Snaith now returns to his Caribou project to unveil its first new material in five years.
The new single 'Home' was premiered on Annie Mac's Radio 1 show last night (8th October), and features a sample of the 1970s soul track 'Home' by Gloria Barnes.
Speaking about the new offering, Snaith said, "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.
"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."
