Duo Andy Clutterbuck and James Hatcher, better known as HONNE, collaborated with Indonesian artist NIKI for their new single “Coming Home,” released on Friday, August 27.
Written in 2020, the song centralizes on a singer on tour lamenting about being away from loved ones and looking forward to coming home – a theme that has found new meaning in the pandemic, as lockdowns keep families apart.
HONNE shared in a Facebook post that they wrote the song with NIKI in Los Angeles before the lockdown and had to “keep it a secret for over a year.”
London-based director Jay Green directed the music video for “Coming Home.” Making sure that the video captures the track’s message, it features stages, taxis, hotel rooms, and red carpets – venues frequented by artists on tour.
“Coming Home” is the second track on HONNE’s upcoming album Let’s Just Say the World Ended A Week From Now, What Would You Do?, written throughout 2020.
The album includes 11 tracks, including collaborations with NIKI, Pink Sweat$, Sofia Valdés, Khalid, and Griff.
The album is set to be released on October 22.
