John Butler Trio: Home

Australia’s highest selling independent artist of all time, John Butler, is finally returning with his first new album in over four years… HOME. It will be unveiled globally on September 28.

The album’s title track premiered online today and represents a genuine creative leap. It’s a complex mesh of poignant lyrics, industrial rhythms and a grinding electronic soul. Dark and brooding, yet at the same time offering hope, this first musical taste pushes the envelope, digs deeper and explores the frustrations, vulnerabilities and tensions of modern life.

"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."

‘Home’ - the song - is therefore the perfect introduction to the much bigger story John will soon share on HOME - the album. It’s a journey of self-discovery and artistic rebirth that promises to be his most distilled and revealing record yet. A snapshot of one person’s journey to find HOME - both as a physical place and a state of being.
