Tiki Taane's new video, No Place Like Home, dedicated to the Bay of Plenty has been released today.

The video was filmed over the past several weeks at iconic spots in the Bay of Plenty including Mount Maunganui main beach, Christmas in the Park and McLaren Falls.

The song talks about what a great place the Bay of Plenty is to live.

It was written in response to a challenge by Tourism Bay of Plenty chief executive Rhys Arrowsmith and fits neatly into Taane's life direction in which Papamoa and the Bay has become home to him and his family.

Taane said the big challenge was to write a song that did not sound cheesy. In the end he settled on a song that captured the essence of what the Bay was all about, without once mentioning Bay of Plenty in the lyrics.

He did sneak the Bay's Maori name into the up-tempo single.
