Shingai from The Noisettes has dropped her debut solo single ‘Coming Home’, a love letter to Zimbabwe

Shingai from The Noisettes has released her debut solo single.

‘Coming Home’ is taken from her upcoming EP ‘Ancient Futures’, which is accompanied by a headline set at the Jazz Cafe in London on 17th April.

“When the Noisettes flew to Zimbabwe to perform at HiFA (Harare International Festival of Arts) it was a phenomenal moment for us as a band,” she says of her solo influences. “It had such an inspirational effect on me as an artist and we will never forget the joyful welcome we received.

“'Coming Home' is my klaxon call for the diaspora to reunite with those at home and build a bridge of hope. Many of us are scattered and undernourished by the environments we have found ourselves in. We are still healing.

“‘Coming Home’ is an ode to our resilience and optimism, even through the chaos. We are a loving people and this is a love song for the future. As a child and even now, whenever ‘Shumba’ plays, I smile inside. I feel proud of my roots and am able to keep persevering.”

Check out ‘Coming Home’ below.
