Home is the eighth studio album by Blue October.[3] The album was recorded between August and November 2015 at Orb Studios in Austin, Texas and Justin Furstenfeld’s home studio Crazy Making Studio. Long-time collaborator Tim Palmer co-produced and mixed the album. The first single, the title track “Home” made its radio debut December 16, 2015.[4] Upon release, the album shot to the #1 spot on the iTunes alternative albums chart.[5] After its first week of sales, Home charted at #10 on the Building Album Sales chart with sales of 22,194 units.[6] In the wake of Prince’s death, several of his albums saw a surge in sales. Had it not been for five of Prince’s albums charting in the top 10 the same week as Home’s debut, the album would have been in the #5 slot. On the Billboard charts, Home debuted at #1 on the Rock Albums Chart, #1 on the Alternative Albums Chart, #1 on the Independent Albums Chart, and #19 on the Billboard 200.[7] The first single is the title track “Home” which as of November 5, 2016 has spent six months the Adult Top 40, so far peaking at #24.
Justin Furstenfeld wrote the album on a tiny keyboard while driving through the California desert.[8]
