Dan Croll releases his new single 'Home' through Deram Records/Universal Music on 25th November 2013.
Taken from his forthcoming highly anticipated debut album. 'Home' is a folksy slice of brilliance and beauty, providing affirmation that Dan Croll is one of the most exciting new voices and songwriters on the scene. The enchanting single is befitting of the simple tenderness of his music, erupting into a magnificent crescendo of melody and harmony.
In a few short months Dan Croll has come from 'Nowhere' to quickly rising as one of the breakthrough acts of 2013; selling out headline dates; bagging coveted support slots with the likes of Haim, Bastille and Imagine Dragons and winning over festival crowds throughout the summer. He has become a regular on the radio, picking up playlist from Radio 1, XFM and 6 Music. He has racked up over 3 million soundcloud streams with blogs and websites featuring him to the extent that he has topped the Hype Machine charts several times.
LIPA graduate and Paul McCartney endorsed Dan Croll is catching everyones attention. Picking off influences from far and wide; the world music of Paul Simon, experimental orchestral work with African choirs, 1960's psychedelia and mining from the same rich seam as acts like The Mars Volta, Beirut, Bon Iver and Vampire Weekend, Dan Croll continues to make a name for himself around the globe.
Recently signed to Deram Records, the British label that first signed David Bowie & Cat Stevens and which released iconic singles Nights in White Satin and Whiter Shade of Pale, Dan Croll is the first artist to appear on the newly revived Universal Music imprint and perfectly encapsulates their ethos of nurturing young, creatively independent artists who envision something different and with an unstoppable flood of ideas.
Off the back of his triumphant headline sets to sold out crowds and supporting Haim at the iTunes festival last week, Dan will head out on the road joining Imagine Dragons on their European Tour in Nov + Dec, hitting everywhere from Manchester to Munich. As well as joining Bastille on some dates in the UK in October, due to popular demand Dan has also announced an extra headline date at Dingwalls in London.
