Dorothy once said, “There’s no place like home,” and Dan Croll, well, he clearly agrees.

The British singer/songwriter’s song “Home” is an ode to the place where he rests his head with cutesy lines like “So if you ever come ’round to my house take your shoes off at the door/’Cause it’s impolite not to; you’ll be damaging my floor” and a video that is set in the same adorable universe Wes Anderson frequents. The clip even features Croll’s tea-drinking grandma. “My nan,” Croll said with delight. “Yea, she’s incredible. She’s 87 and still looking good.”

Croll wrote the song nearly three years ago after a trip to Berlin that he had taken with his now ex-girlfriend in the middle of winter. “I can just remember the trip being great, but just very cold and quite gray and it was just the feeling of flying back home,” Croll said. His dad picked him up from the airport and brought him back to Stoke, England, where his parents still live. He just remembers walking through the door and seeing his whole family sitting by the fire and it just being so nice. He wanted the song to emulate that same warm and fuzzy feeling.
