Folk/Soul Songstress Lánre Debuts New Single "Home"
British Folk/Soul singer, songwriter and musician Lánre is back with a brand new single titled “Home”, serving as the lead single and title track from her forthcoming EP and long-awaited follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2011 debut albumPen Voyage Chapter One: Singing For Change.
Written and composed by Lánre herself, with Richard Burrell (Rita Ora, Rudimental, The Noisettes) on guitars along with Lánre, Nora Kalcheva from Bulgarian band Strings on cello, Stewart Rawle on bass guitar and Feranmi Ogunseyinde (Rainy Milo, Josh Record) on drums and percussions, “Home” sees Lánre in glorious form, showcasing her soft and warm vocal texture, exquisite alto notes and superb songwriting prowess.
Taking inspiration from her recent Living Room Sessions tour which saw Lánre taking her intimate concert experience into people’s living rooms across the country, and her work with UK charity organisation Crisis which supports marginalized and homeless people, “Home” is a touching and compelling ode to our endless affinity and yearning for a place that we can each call home.
Following the success of her debut album Pen Voyage Chapter One: Singing For Change, Lánre has spent the last 18 months touring the UK, Canada, France and Sweden, taking her unique sound of Acoustic Soul, Folk and captivating storytelling influenced by her Yoruba heritage, to the Royal Albert Hall, Greenbelt Festival, Edinburgh Fringe, Bath Music Festival, Folkstock Festival, Musicport Festival and the Brighton Fringe among others.
Lánre’s Home EP will be released on May 1, 2014, listen to the lead single “Home” here.
