Clean Bandit Announce Release Of Second Studio Album 'What Is Love?'

Thursday, 27 September 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Clean Bandit have announced details of their second album, 'What Is Love?'

The follow up to the band’s 2014 debut, 'New Eyes' is due out on November 30 and features a blockbuster cast of guest vocalists including Ellie Goulding, Big Boi, Tove Styrke, Stefflon Don, Craig David, Rita Ora and more. The deluxe edition will feature Yasmin Green, Charli XCX, Bhad Bhabie, DaVido, Love Ssega and Louisa Johnson.

The trio, who are nominated for Best British Group at this year's BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards, have already shared singles Rockabye featuring Anne-Marie and Sean Paul, Symphony featuring Zara Larsson, I Miss You featuring Julia Michaels, Tears featuring Louisa Johnson and Solo featuring Demi Lovato. The album, meanwhile, was produced by Mark Ralph, alongside the band's Jack Patterson and Grace Chatto, who 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."

The band have also shared the album's cover art and tracklist, below.
