The release of ‘I’m Home’ follows on from some huge performances by the group (ZM Electric Avenue, Ōtautahi 4 Aotearoa) as well as their impressive 5-star-reviewed self-titled debut album (Dec 2022), with hits ‘Groove Show’, ‘The Children’ ‘Runaway’ and ‘Good Doctor’ (ZM Locals only, NZOA New Tracks).
1 Drop Nation is made up of talented musicians Derin Thompson (keyboards, backing vocals / Nga Tai Ki Torere), Paerau Hemopo (guitar / Ngāi Tahu, Te Arawa, Ngā Puhi), Burke Goffe (guitar / Ngā Puhi, Te Ātiawa) Marc Hansen (drums), Dru (bass, backing vocals), and Kanei Johnson (lead vocals / Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Kahungunu), who says that ‘I’m Home’ was written to acknowledge how beautiful Aotearoa is. The single was recorded and mixed by Dr Lee Prebble at Wellington’s Surgery Studios, and mastered by Josh Llewellyn at Downbeat Mastering.
