Another Home

Album: Ashes and Roses (2012)
  • Between the release of Carpenter's 2010 album The Age Of Miracles and 2012's Ashes and Roses, the singer-songwriter was forced to endure her share of changes, thanks to the ending of her marriage and the death of her father. This revealing slice of Carpenter's life finds her reflecting on her future. "It's a song I wrote when I was thinking about where I wanted to place myself next," she explained to Billboard magazine. "I wasn't sure I wanted to stay where I had been living. I felt there would be a place where I could find home again. To all of us, it's the thing that grounds us the most, and at the same time, I had recently lost my father. So, it speaks to that spiritual place where you feel that even thought someone has passed on, you will always be connected. There's comfort there. It was coinciding with a search on my part for a new place to live in my heart literally and spiritually. So, there's a lot going on in that song."
