The first new music from Dan Snaith under his Caribou moniker since 2014.

Five years since the release of the incredible studio album Our Love, we have new music from Caribou. Dan Snaith, the man behind the moniker, also releases music under Daphni, which we’ve heard more recently, but his new single, “Home,” marks the return of Caribou. Sampling Gloria Barnes’ song of the same name the chill track feels like a futuristic throwback.

Dan Snaith had a bit to say about the track, noting “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.”

Snaith continued, “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.”

In addition to the new song he announced a worldwide tour. You can see all the dates below and find “Home” from Caribou on our Tasty! Jams playlists.
