Album: Home Again (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Home Again contains songs dating back a few years before the album was recorded and also more recently penned numbers. This raw acoustic tune was the last one that Kiwanuka wrote for the record. He told This is Fake DIY: "I've scrapped quite a lot of tracks and I'd never put anything I wasn't completely happy with on the album, whether it was a fresh one or a track from way back. The album is full of songs that I think fit well together and I feel like this is definitely one of those."
