Home is the second album by the Irish rock band Hothouse Flowers. Released in 1990 via London Records, it reached number 2 on the UK Albums Chart and spent 1 week at number 1 on the Australian charts.[3] The band did an extended tour in Australia, and had built up a significant following there, which may have contributed to their success in the charts. Two singles from the album charted in the United Kingdom: "Give It Up" (#30) and "I Can See Clearly Now" (#23). "Give It Up" also charted in the United States (#2 Modern Rock Tracks/#29 Mainstream Rock Tracks).
