Home is the eighth Simply Red studio album, released in 2003. It is the first Simply Red album released on band frontman Mick Hucknall's own record label, Simplyred.com. The album was a success all around the world, due to the hit singles, "Sunrise", "Fake", "You Make Me Feel Brand New" and "Home".

The success of "Sunrise" was due in part to the sensuous video being shot in Rio de Janeiro, and its borrowing of a loop found in the 1981 Hall and Oates single "I Can't Go for That" (as well as some of the lyrics).

The album includes three cover versions: the Bob Dylan song, "Positively 4th Street," the The Stylistics' soul hit, "You Make Me Feel Brand New," and the Dennis Brown song, "Money in My Pocket".
