Coming Home

Songfacts®:

  • Gorgon City open their Sirens album with this expression of yearning for home. The song features vocals by Irish-English singer-songwriter Maverick Sabre, who is best known for his UK Top 20 single "Let Me Go."
  • The Gorgon City pair and Sabre co-wrote the song with Jonny Coffer who previously contributed towards Naughty Boy's hit single "La La La."
  • Gorgon City told Q magazine the story of the song: "The sample at the start of this track was the main inspiration for this beat, we wanted a warm positive start to the album and we loved the way all of the elements work together."

    "When we played the chords to Maverick Sabre and Jonny Coffer, we all came up with the idea for the song – a warming notion of coming home to your loved ones."
