Rounding off three great tours with From The Jam, The Stranglers and Big Country, Mike Marlin is supporting The Blue Aeroplanes for their London show before going back into the studio to record his second album.
No Place like Home is Mike Marlin’s last single from his debut album Nearly Man which finds Mike walking the streets and boulevards between the blue eyed soul of Hall & Oats and the suave sophistication of the Thin White Duke. It has a different vibe to it than much of his album, a sort of French café thing, the song tries to conjure up the sense of yearning for somewhere to be, or someone to be with, so you feel safe. The single version features a new arrangement and has been remastered with the midas touch of Barry Grint at Alchemy, famous for his work on everyone from The Beach Boys to Jessie J.
