By on October 12, 2018

The hit makers Clean Bandit, composed of Jack Patterson, Grace Chatto and Luke Patterson, is again album actual and releases their second studio album on November 30th. “What Is Love?” is the sequel to the prized debut “New Eyes” from 2014 and the result of three years of work.

Clean Bandit is known for its collaborations with other artists and on the upcoming album they have collaborated with Zara Larsson, Marina and the Diamonds, Luis Fonsi, Demi Lovato, Sean Paul, Anne Marie, Ellie Goulding, KYLE, Big Boi, Tove Styrke, Stefflon Don, Craig David, Kirsten Joy, Rita Ora, Julia Michaels and ALMA. The deluxe version of the album also includes songs with the artists Yasmin Green, Charli XCX, Bhad Bhabie, DaVido, Love Ssega and Louisa Johnson. In addition to new songs, the album also includes the previous hit songs “Rockabye” with Anne-Marie and Sean Paul, “Symphony” with. Zara Larsson, “I Miss You” with Julia Michaels, “Tears” with Louisa Johnson and “Solo” with Demi Lovato. The songs were recorded worldwide and were produced by trion’s recurring producer Mark Ralph (Years & Years) along with the twofolded Ivor Novello winning band members Jack Patterson and Grace Chatto.

“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.”
