Your New House

When Ricky was young he moved into a new housing estate in West Ferry, Dundee. Seeing that house being built inspired the lead track on ‘A New House’ and there are clips of that moment in the video to the track here.

We would like you to share memories, pictures and video of Your New House, be them old or new.

Entries will be in with a chance of winning a signed copy of the boxset version of ‘A New House’ which includes ‘Bloom’, an album of demos and previously unreleased tracks from ‘The Hipsters’ and ‘A New House’ sessions.

Post them on Twitter using #ANewHouse

We will host them in a gallery on the site.
