BIG STIR RECORDS and SPYDERPOP RECORDS jointly announce the first major release of their new partnership: a full digital and physical relaunch of the acclaimed album HOME from LANNIE FLOWERS, out July 23, 2021. Hailed upon its original 2019 release as “a masterpiece” (Mike Lidskin, Woody Radio) and the best album of the year by Goldmine Magazine's John Borack, Home – accompanied by a brand new single showcasing the title track and an exclusive b-side – stands to reach new ears and hearts with its dazzling demonstration of the Texas guitar-pop legend's songwriting prowess.
Home will bow to expanded digital distribution on the release date as the new single hits the airwaves worldwide. The eye-popping deluxe double-LP vinyl and CD editions, both designed by Lannie Flowers Band member Dan Zimmer, will also debut at the Big Stir Records web store and Bandcamp page – www.bigstirrecords.com/store
– and both physical editions will be available for standard, non-import shipping prices to fans in the UK and EU for the first time. Expect to see and hear Lannie making the rounds for fresh interviews and features for the occasion as new listeners and longtime fans alike thrill to the joys of Home.
The third in Lannie's trilogies of song cycles (following 2008's Same Old Story and 2011's Circles), Home marks a new level of depth and maturity in Flowers' songwriting. But it's filled with the hooks, harmony and heart that have made the Pengwins frontman a hero in power pop and pop-rock circles for decades. The ace musicianship of Lannie's band and collaborators brings the emotional core of Home – its melancholy, its yearning, its passion – into focus as a whole that's even more than the sum of the touching and deftly arranged songs that are its parts. The wider world is about to discover all over again – or for the first time – that Home is where the heart is.
