Australia’s highest selling independent artist of all time, John Butler Trio, has dropped the video for his latest single ‘Home’ today. A gritty visual characterization of the song, the clip shows the competing elements of John’s life: on the road, on stage and of course at home as he grapples with the balance we all struggle to maintain in our own lives.
Already capturing the hearts and ears of Australians, the complex mesh of poignant lyrics, industrial rhythms, and a grinding electronic soul has both surprised and delighted fans both old and new, landing heavily across radio formats and playlists.
Watch the video for ‘Home’ here:
The title track from John’s upcoming seventh studio album is dark and brooding, yet at the same time offers hope, pushing the envelope to explore the frustrations, vulnerabilities and tensions of modern life. The album HOME which is available for pre-order now and released on September 28 will further tell the story.
“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,” explains John Butler. “(This track) scratches the surface of the emotional and sonic landscape that eventually became the bedrock of the album.”
Fans who’ve seen a John Butler Trio gig over recent months – including the recent sold out show at Denver’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre – have already been treated to sneak previews of some new songs. Following the album’s release, the band will take their new music to audiences in Japan, Europe and North America and then return … home. The Trio will play one concert at The Caloundra Music Festival prior to heading off around the world.
The single ‘Home’ now available for download and streaming while the HOME album is also available to pre-order now. A range of exclusive bundles, including signed CD’s, LP’s and HOME merchandise, are also available now HERE.
Stay tuned for more touring announcements – and the release of more tracks – between now and the album release on September 28th.
