Putting 2022 on notice, Richard Durand follows up his HALIENE-sung ‘Give Your Heart A Home’ with a new, every-bit-as killer team-up with Christian Burns. It’s a case of ‘from one Home to another’ too, as ‘Almost Home’ sees Richard serve the final-stage release ahead of his new ‘Reactivate’ LP.

As those with good memories will remember, Richard and Christian already share a professional history. As ‘Night & Day’ now has ten candles on its cake though, the pair considered a studio reunion long overdue.

RICHARD DURAND

In deference to Christian’s supreme ability to convey story through lyric, the Original Mix’s spotlight is largely given over to his song. Backed by little more than contemplative piano notes and harmonies, Christian delivers a touching tale of longing that’ll resonate with many. Acting essentially as an emotional overture to his Extended version, at pace and with seismic charge, Richard takes ‘Almost Home’ to the clubs.   ‘Almost Home’ is released today and available through all good outlets here (https://blackhole.lnk.to/almosthome). ‘Reactivate’, the LP, will arrive on streams and stores on Jan 28, and is pre-orderable through this link (https://blackhole.lnk.to/Reactivate).
