First Train Home

  • This electro-tinged track is the opening track from English singer-songwriter Imogen Heap's third solo album, Ellipse.
  • The song had its World Premiere on Santa Monica's KCRW radio station on July 10th, 2009. Heap explained to radio host Jason Bently that the song is about her being at a party in Brighton where, "I had so much going on in my head and I just didn't want to be there... I just really wanted to be somewhere else... I had gotten the first train home back to my home in Essex and went to the piano and this is the song that I wrote."
