It's Good To Gather Moss: A Young Artist On Missing 'Home'

Dan Croll's debut album is <em>Sweet Disarray</em>.

British singer-songwriter Dan Croll was barely out of his performing arts college when he won a national songwriting award and a sit-down meeting with none other than Paul McCartney. The 23-year-old goes on the road this month, playing songs from his debut album, Sweet Disarray — but before taking off, he sat down with NPR's Audie Cornish to talk about one song that means a lot to him. It's called "Home," and he says it was inspired by his days as a broke student, coming home after an ill-advised and ill-prepared-for winter weekend getaway to Berlin. Hear their conversation at the audio link.
