'Home' is the new EP by 19-year-old pop-folk songstress Gabrielle Aplin. It is out on January 9th, on her own label, Never Fade Records. The EP was available for pre-order from December 5th 2012 and is exclusive to iTunes.
Written by Gabrielle herself, it's a frank and honest exposition of her musical and personal development and marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the Bath born teenager. The 'Home' EP follows the success of Gabrielle's previously self-released EPs the 'Acoustic' EP and 'Never Fade', the latter having peaked at No.14 in the iTunes Chart.
The video for Home sees Gabrielle wandering the grounds of a castle, before cutting to her walking along a deserted beach at sunset. By the end of the video, it is night time and Gabrielle is holding a burning torch that was seen on the beach.
Gabrielle has already made an impressive online imprint, amassing over 6.5 million plays on her YouTube channel and over 35,000 subscribers, as well as 22,000+ likes on Facebook and 7,000+ followers on Twitter. She played several festivals this summer, including Glastonbury and Secret Garden Party and has taken in three headline UK tours, with sold out shows in Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Bath and London. She tours the UK in March.
