Lauren Fairweather Heading “Home”


It has been a little over a month, but some of us here at LeakyNews are still having leftover LeakyCon feelings. Luckily, we have wonderful people like Lauren Fairweather to make us feel better!

Today Lauren released a new single, “Home,” inspired by J.K. Rowling’s speech at the London premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2: “Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.” This is Lauren’s first single as a DFTBA Records artist.

The single has an upbeat, sparkling quality, and you can practically hear Lauren smiling through the nostalgia. It is a beautiful anthem for the fans who continue to return to the books and movies for that feeling of welcome and familiarity. “Home” is a reminder that the friends and family found through the series mean Harry Potter is ”not just a book; it’s your childhood and it’s music so join the band.”

The music video was filmed at this year’s LeakyCon and edited by YouTuber emilieofnewgloom. Check it out below and prepare for tears of joy.
