Clean Bandit ‘works with a lot of UK artists’ – Reuters

Clean Bandit are “working with a lot of UK artists” on their new album.

The chart-topping group – which includes Grace Chatto, Jack Patterson and Luke Patterson – are currently working on their third album, and Grace has given fans a taste of what to expect from the record.

The 36-year-old singer told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “We’re writing so many songs at the moment and working with a lot of British artists.

“With our last album, ‘What Is Love’, we really tried to make a seamless sound, but with our first album, it was everywhere – dancehall, house, classical.

“So with the third album, we’ll probably go more in that direction because there’s so many styles of sounds.”

The “Symphony” hitmakers have previously collaborated with Demi Lovato, Anne-Marie, Zara Larsson and Sean Paul.

Grace previously revealed that she was actively trying to arrange a collaboration with Lewis Capaldi.

She explained: “We would love to collaborate with him. We have contacted him several times, but without success so far.

“But he’s amazing.”

Grace described Lewis as a “nice guy” – but she also acknowledged he probably gets a lot of requests from other artists.

The singer said, “He’s definitely a nice guy but poor thing he must be getting so many DMs.”

Clean Bandit also insisted on having Rita Ora on their third album.

The band previously worked with Rita on 2018 track “Nowhere” – which featured on their “What Is Love?” album – and they are said to be eager to reunite with the pop star.

A source previously said: “Rita’s schedule is one of the busiest in music, but Clean Bandit is keen to lock her in.

“They are working on their third album and hope to work with her again in the near future.”
