Michael Lane releases the indie-folk single “Coming Home” on September 11th. The previously known global reality has recently ceased to exist. Coming home, being at home or feeling at home has since been associated with a multitude of new, different feelings, in both a positive and a negative sense. But just as different as people are, so are the emotions at the thought of coming home just as unique.
„The song ‚Coming Home‘ isn’t just about coming home, but more about the feeling you get or have when you’re at a place that you would consider your home. Growing up I moved around a lot, and never really had a steady place that I could call home until I started my own family, and now I do have my own place to call home. It really is a sanctuary for my soul, where I can relax and enjoy the finer things in life“, Michael Lane explains.
If there is a modern folk-pop artist who has seen the harsh realities in life, it is Michael Lane himself. As a US soldier in his twenties, sent to Iraq and Afghanistan, Michael was forced to live at cruelty. And if his previous albums were like a kind of musical diary in which these experiences were reflected, Michael Lane’s regained ease and joy can clearly be seen in „Coming Home”. The song is a message of hope and positive certainty that a time of crisis will lead people back to the important things.
Successes such as two top 50 songs in the German charts, four albums, international tours and the single “Liberty” as the official song of the 2015/2016 Four Hills Tournament, Europe’s biggest international ski jump event, have made the German-American known to the public. In addition to his work as a musician, Michael Lane is currently also active as a songwriter for production music and as a music producer in his remote “Studio Waldblick“.
