English alternative duo HONNE have shared their latest single titled ‘Coming Home’ with Indonesian singer-songwriter NIKI.
The track arrived on major streaming platforms today (August 27) as their second collaboration, following last year’s brief ‘iloveyoumorethanicansay’. ‘Coming Home’ is a notch more upbeat than the rest of HONNE’s downtempo catalog, with the duo HONNE’s Andy Clutterbuck fanning his deepest desire to reunite with a lover.
“I’m coming home / There’s nowhere else I’d rather go / And I’ll be back before you know / ‘Cause baby, I’m coming home,” he sings. NIKI arrives as the other half in this affair, mulling over the distance between the two.
“I’ve been thinking how much I could do better / So many times I’ve let you down / Every single note and every letter / Can’t replace me when I’m not around,” she sings.

‘Coming Home’ is the latest preview of the English duo’s upcoming album ‘LET’S JUST SAY THE WORLD ENDED A WEEK FROM NOW, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?,’ which is due for release in October.
The track will receive a music video, due for premiere later tonight 9pm. The band shared a teaser promoting the clip in the style of a movie poster, adding “would you go and see this movie?”
Prior to ‘Coming Home’, the duo have released three other songs from the record so far – ‘What Would You Do’ featuring Pink Sweat$, ‘IDGAF About Pain’ and ‘Now I’m Alone’ with Sofia Valdes.
‘iloveyoumorethanicansay’, the duo’s first collaboration with NIKI, was a 30-second track taken from a full song that they have yet to release. It was included in their first mixtape, ‘No Song Without You’, released in 2020. “but trust us when we say – this isn’t the last time you’ll hear @nikizefanya x HONNE collab,” they tweeted upon its release.
Earlier this month, NIKI dropped a laid-back single titled ‘Every Summertime’. The track was accompanied by a music video starring rapper Dumbfoundead and Minari star Alan Kim.
In September 2020, the Indonesian musician released her long-awaited debut studio album ‘Moonchild’, featuring previously released singles ‘Switchblade’, ‘Selene’ and ‘Lose’. In a four-star review of the album, NME‘s MC Galang called the record a “poised, genre-hopping debut from the 88rising star”.
