Listen to Kasabian’s new anthemic single ‘Coming Back To Me Good’

Kasabian have dropped ‘Coming Back To Me Good’ – the new summer-ready single from their forthcoming album. Check it out below.

Shared this morning (April 12), the new song marks the latest single that the Leicester-born rockers have shared from their upcoming album ‘Happenings’.

Coming in at less than three minutes long, the track takes on the form of a short and sweet anthem, made to celebrate the summer with a burst of energy. “Don’t give up, it’s not too late/ Get the feeling that you’re in a state/ The shock is coming over you/ And there’s nothing left for me to do/ Tell me something I don’t know,” sings Sergio Pizzorno in the high energy opening lines, shortly before the explosive chorus kicks in.

The track follows on from the announcement of the album that Kasabian dropped back in February, which also saw them drop the mammoth track ‘Call’, and is described by the band as being one of the most euphoric moments on the whole LP.

“It’s got that disco drive, but there’s also a moment of togetherness,” Pizzorno said of the single. “I imagine playing this when the sun’s out and your team is in the semi-final because it’s just so joyful.”

The indie veterans first shared that their “psychedelic” new album of “big hitters” was on the way last year, when they announced details of a huge homecoming gig in the form of Summer Solstice II – a return to Victoria Park on Saturday July 6 after previously playing an outdoor gig there 10 years ago.

The LP will mark follow-up to 2022’s ‘The Alchemist’s Euphoria’ and their second since the exit of Tom Meighan. It is expected to feature 10 songs on the tracklist, although clocks in at just 26 minutes – “A minute shorter than the Ramones’ debut,” Pizzorno explained.

It was written at his musician’s home studio, The Sergery, and features Mark Ralph (Zara Larsson, Clean Bandit, Rudimental) as co-producer.

“It’s very much an album that can only be made today. The influences are there, but it’s been made with the tools that I have around me now. It’s a really simple sentiment. Every section has to be a chorus and demand attention for the whole album. It’s relentless in its course,” the singer told NME in a recent interview.

“I was always trying to make guitar music interesting. I don’t even know what you’d call our band. Are we a rock band? This time I was really into pop structure and making everything super clean and punchy – taking those kooky, crazy, weird sounds and making them hit like a modern record.”

He also added that fans can expect to see the tracks embedded into their live setlists, particularly due to their short, high-energy nature. “In between huge gigs we’d come home and ask, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a song like this?’ I’ve never really written on tour, so that was nice,” he explained. “That informed how the music was made. I really enjoyed that process and it made a lot of sense.”

As for upcoming gigs, as well as their return to Victoria Park, the band have also locked in a headline slot at this year’s Latitude festival. Visit here for remaining tickets to their upcoming live dates.
