Cookin’ On 3 Burners are back, baby. Returning with a brand new track that puts not only their divine brand of funk and soul music, but the wonderful vocal talents of Stella Angelico, to the fore, the Melbourne group drops ‘I’m Comin’ Home To You’.

The single, a fitting follow on from ‘Wind Up’ (released in June), is a gorgeous and rich offering that yearns musically, as it does lyrically, to wrap itself around you with its warmth. ‘I’m Comin’ Home To You’ is a Cookin’ On 3 Burners masterclass – blending strong production with an innate grasp on influence and a core sonic identity that has established them as a globally renowned unit.

Recorded at the group’s Soul Messin’ Studios in Melbourne, ‘I’m Comin’ Home To You’ was mixed by CO3B’s Jake Mason, and mastered by Lachlan Carrick (Gotye, C.W. Stoneking). And along with the talents of Mason on piano, tenor and baritone saxophone, Dan West on guitar and Ivan Khatchoyan on drums and percussion, the track also features Rohan Wallis on trumpet and Raleigh Williams on additional vocals.

Of their new track, CO3B say ‘I’m Comin’ Home To You’ is about what it offers on the title – a certified soul stomper that is about returning home to get what you need. Says vocalist Angelico of the new track, working with CO3B on this was a no-brainer.

“As soon as I heard this one, I knew I wanted to write on it. It conjured images of water sparkling in the sun, bright blue skies, riding a bike on a warm night. I was thinking of Sicily, I was thinking of Melbourne, where I’ve grown up and feel most at home – and where we chose to shoot the gorgeous, very domestic cover shots with Jo Duck. I was thinking of coming home to someone you love, coming home to yourself…”

The track highlights the ease of dynamic that exists between Angelico and Cookin’ On 3 Burners; an easy energy exchange that has led to the formation of a striking live presence together, and continued collaborations in the studio. With more new music on the way, ‘I’m Comin’ Home To You’ is a beautiful addition to what has become an impressive catalogue of music for Cookin’ On 3 Burners.

With over five million monthly listeners to their name on Spotify, membership on APRA AMCOS’ exclusive 1,000,000,000 List (‘This Girl’), as well as an unshakeable level of respect as a live band not just in Australia, but around the world, Cookin’ On 3 Burners have never waned in their relevance or impact.

Having taken their brand of funk and soul throughout Europe, the U.K. and Japan, not to mention confirming their status as favourites on the Australian festival scene at the likes of Queenscliff, Port Fairy and Sydney Festivals; supporting the likes of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings and Fat Freddy’s Drop, the group has endeared themselves to thousands.
