Published Oct 08, 2019Today Caribou is back with not only his first new track in five years but also a newly announced 2020 tour.
The tour begins in Dan Snaith's hometown of Hamilton, ON, on March 16, making stops in Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal before heading to the U.S. and Europe. The full itinerary can be seen below.
Alongside the tour announcement, Snaith has shared a brand new track called "Home."
On the new song, Snaith had the following to offer in a statement:
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.
Listen to "Home" in the player below, where you'll also find all Caribou's upcoming tour dates.
Snaith's most recent record was Joli Mai, which he released under his Daphni moniker. "Home" marks the first new track under his Caribou moniker since 2014's Our Love.
