A pop culture icon of our age, Christina Perri‘s talent is undeniable. It feels like it’s been so long since she last released an album so we are so happy that a lighter shade of blue will be dropping next month. Her latest single ‘home’ is an ode to growing up and finding an appreciation for your hometown. Sometimes the people and places you’ve been are what makes something special! Fans of classic Christina ballads like ‘A Thousand Years’ and ‘Jar Of Hearts’ will adore this single.
Since she released Head or Heart in 2013, Christina has been busy with life, love, and starting a family. We’ve seen her grow and flourish, as well as overcome some of the greatest challenges in life. We’ve heard some of this growth in her previous two singles ‘evergone’ and ‘mothers,’ but ‘home’ reflects a bit more about growing up and appreciating the past.
Christina has always had a talent for tapping into raw emotion like no one else can. ‘home’ is just another example of her excellent craftsmanship of lyrics and melody. We’ve never been to her hometown but we’re getting all sentimental about her Friday night parties and singing counting crows with the top down. In fact, we can totally see this becoming the soundtrack for a TikTok trend towards the end of summer when people are reflecting on all the memories they’ve made in the sun.
It feels like Christina pours a little bit of her soul into every song she writes. We can’t wait to hear the full album on July 15th. You best believe we’ve pre-saved and definitely have our eye on the merch (it is cute beyond belief). Christina is also doing a mini tour to celebrate the release so if you’re in Austin, LA, New York, or Philadephia – you are in luck! Grab a ticket here while they’re hot!
