Home Again is the debut studio album by British blues & soul musician Michael Kiwanuka, released in March 2012 via Polydor Records.

The album was produced by Paul Butler of the UK indie rock band The Bees in The Steam Rooms, a basement studio in his house in Ventnor on the Isle of Wight.

The album garnered a positive reception from critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 72, based on 25 reviews.

Alexis Petredis of The Guardian gave high praise to Butler's production for capturing early '70s soul music and Kiwanuka's vocals and lyrics for feeling authentic, saying that, "Home Again's strength lies in the fact that it manages to tick a lot of boxes without sounding like it set out to tick a lot of boxes." Gareth James of Clash also praised Butler for his soft, acoustic production and compared Kiwanuka's vocals positively to Bill Withers, calling the album "an absolute treat for fans of rootsy vintage soul and a remarkable statement of intent for a debut release."

Home Again peaked at #4 in the UK and #67 on the Australian ARIA Albums charts.

The album spawned four singles: "Home Again", "I'm Getting Ready", "I'll Get Along" and "Bones".  Two tracks featured on previous EPs: "Tell Me A Tale" and "I'm Getting Ready"

This LP record is on 180 gram black vinyl with a printed inner sleeve, pressed in Europe via Polydor Records.
