Caribou—aka Canadian producer Dan Snaith—has returned with a soulful new song, “Home.”
The groovy track is built around a sample of Gloria Barnes’ 1971 song of the same name. Snaith delivers buttery vocals over harp flourishes, horns and orchestral strings: “It all seemed so easy / ’Cause she did it on her own / There’s so much she can teach me / She’s going home.”
“I’m always listening to lots of music and sometimes a loop just jumps out at me—it’s too perfect,” Snaith said of the Barnes sample. “I kept returning to it, meaning to do something with it but not knowing what… It wasn’t until the circumstances of someone close to me mirrored the refrain of the original song that the track all came together.”
“Home” is the first new Caribou track in over five years, since his 2014 album Our Love. Earlier this year, Snaith released the track “Sizzling” under his Daphni moniker.
