Better Than Home is the seventh studio album by American singer-songwriter Beth Hart, released in April 2015 by Provogue Records.

What’s Better than Home? Nothing, as L.A. chanteuse Beth Hart proves on this relaxing album. Blues purists and idealists be warned: Only two songs, “Might As Well Smile” and “Trouble”, might be up to the genre’s exacting standards. The rest are low-key, soul-influenced songs. Here, she’s squarely found a niche in mellow ballads.

This is her most introspective work yet with songs from the depth of her soul. It is a mature piece of work full of sincerity. The themes and musical messages are about acknowledging that things weren’t perfect, and there’s always a better place that you can go to help you move on. This album isn’t about what’s been wrong with Beth’s life. Instead, she’s choosing to find the good things that have been there all along.

In a way, Better Than Home is classic Beth Hart. Each song is fuelled by the power and intensity of her voice, with her blues background never far from the surface. While Hart rocks hardest in “Trouble”, tracks like “The Mood That I’m In” and “Might As Well Smile” keep the tempo up and allow Hart room to stretch her voice. Piano accents add delicacy to Hart’s soothing vocals in “We’re Still Living In The City” and “As Long As I Have A Song”, while “Mechanical Heart” benefits from orchestral accompaniment.

Hart explores new realms on Better Than Home, both creatively and production-wise, and shows Hart moving forward as a musician and songwriter.

For Beth Hart fans ready to hear a mellow, deeply reflective and personal album, check this one out. To a sincere Beth Hart, naught is Better than Home! 

Check out the tracks: “Better Than Home”; “Mechanical Heart” and “Trouble”. 

This LP record with digital download is pressed in Europe on Red 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
