Clean Bandit have confirmed their second album features Ellie Goulding, Marina and the Diamonds and Rita Ora
Clean Bandit's star-studded second studio album features the likes of Ellie Goulding and Marina and the Diamonds.
The British pop trio - Grace Chatto and brothers Luke and Jack Patterson - have unveiled the track-listing for their second studio LP 'What Is Love', which sees the 'Still Falling For You' hitmaker on the song 'Mama', whilst Marina - who they released 'Disconnect' with last year - provides guest vocals on opening track 'Baby' with Latin star Luis Fonsi.
It also confirms the 'Symphony' hitmakers' collaboration with Rita Ora on the song 'Nowhere' with US rapper KYLE.
Finnish star ALMA works her magic on 'In Us I Believe ', Stefflon Don appears on 'Last Goodbye' and Craig David on 'We Were Just Kids'.
Explaining the title of the record - the follow-up to their 2014 debut LP 'New Eyes' - which explores every aspect of love from "heartbreak" to "romantic love" and even "brotherly love", Grace said: "The album looks at many different kinds and stages of love.
"We've been making it over three years, during which time we've all experiences love in our lives in different ways and, some of us, heartbreak too.
"Somehow this is all expressed in the music: brotherly love; family love; romantic love; crazy all-consuming love; the pain of love turning into something different or dishonest; and, of course, in 'Rockabye', unconditional motherly love. It explores the sacrifices we all go through for love and for each other, even when it is difficult. It's been such an honour to write and record with all of the amazing singers and musicians involved in the record. We made the songs all over the world, mainly in North London and LA - some lines were even recorded in a bathroom in Uganda! We really hope that everyone will find tracks on this album to identify with and we can't wait to share it with you."
Fans who purchase the deluxe edition will get to hear the Charli XCX-featuring record 'Playboy Style' with Bhad Bhabie.
'What Is Love?' is released on November 30 and is available to pre-order now.
