A New House

Album: A New House (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The lead single and title track of Deacon Blue's A New House album, this was inspired by a childhood memory of frontman Ricky Ross. "I remember driving out when we were kids to see a new house being built in the suburbs," he said. "It was as if they were trying to contain the countryside, building roads and houses on it. But you can never quite contain it."
