Home Counties is the first album from seminal indie-dance act Saint Etienne since their critically acclaimed 2012 album, Words And Music. The new release was inspired by the band's bitter-sweet relationship with the eponymous shires that have always been part of their lives. It was recorded in the summer and autumn of 2016 and produced by Shawn Lee of Young Gun Silver Fox fame with support from Augustus (Kero Kero Bonito), Robin Bennett (The Dreaming Spires), Richard X and long-time collaborator Gerard Johnson (Denim, Yes).

Sarah Cracknell says: "We had so much fun writing for this album, drawing influence from our teenage years growing up in the home counties. Bob, Pete and I led almost parallel lives while I was in Windsor and they were in Surrey, developing our passion for music and London. Shawn Lee was a joy to work with, he's a wonderful multi-instrumentalist who seemed to have some kind of telepathy with us and translated our ideas perfectly. The record is quite varied in styles and brings together a little something from all our past albums whilst sounding completely new."

The vinyl edition comes as a 2LP-set featuring 19 new recordings over 4 sides housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve with printed inners designed by artist Scott King, 9 custom shiny stickers to apply directly on the front cover and an accompanying digital download card.
