Get ready folks, this is a big one. The legendary John Butler Trio have announced their return today, with details of a forthcoming album and their new massive single ‘Home’.
‘Home’ is the lead singe taken from the upcoming album of the same name. HOME (the album) supposedly represents “a journey of self-discovery and artistic rebirth”, given the fact that it’s JBT’s first album since 2014’s Flesh & Blood. It’s also apparently JBT’s most revealing record to date.
Of the song, the man himself John Butler explained in a statement how it reflects the album as a whole.
“Given the very personal subject matter of these new songs I pondered what it might mean to record in mainly a solo format for the first time ever,” he said.
“‘Home’ scratches the surface of the emotional and sonic landscape that eventually became the bedrock of the album.”
We’ve also been promised that we can expect a tour announcement soon. Earlier this year, John Butler Trio were announced as one of the headliners of Caloundra Music Festival this September.
HOME is out Friday, 28th September. Listen to the title track below.
