Martin reportedly wore exactly the same attire over the course of the several days the track was recorded, which is something of a habit for the musician. At the time of the re-recording, West had ready an unused hip-hop beat intended for what went on to become \"Heard 'Em Say,\" the third single from his sophomore album Late Registration (2005). But Chris Martin reportedly advocated, \"No this track's beat needs to be more like a homecoming or something.\" West subsequently retracted the looped soul sample repeated that was throughout \"Home\" and had it replaced insead with a pompous piano riff, which he decorated over stadium-friendly drums. Most of the tracks on Graduation had contained glossy, layered synthesizer-based productions influenced by West's experimentation with electronic music. But on \"Homecoming,\" he opted for different, more stripped-down instrumental to complement the introspective quality of its triumphant yet melancholic lyrics.
