Songs for the Coming Home has at its heart the notion that we are always striving to return. Returning to a place of solace, understanding, compassion, a place of justice, mercy and peace. That despite the carnage around us we can still save the day. This theme came together for Martyn during the last song he brought to the table..Clara. It tells the true story of how a famed writer was rescued from a suicide attempt by a melody that was unknown to him, that which we call art, sung to him as a small child by a carer called Clara. Some seventy seven years later after she cared for him as a baby they are reunited and she sings the same song to him. Its only then that he realises where the song came from and how literally the music saved him. The other themes across the album are varied and diverse but all lead back to the central premise. Music to bring us home.
