UK dance doyens Clean Bandit are back, this time alongside US pop starlet Demi Lovato on their new single ‘Solo’.
The British trio has experienced an altogether decent chart run, thanks to classy dance/pop numbers including ‘Rather Be’, ‘Real Love’, ‘Stronger’, ‘Symphony’ and their No.1 smash ‘Rockabye’. Their UK No.1 tally stands at three.
Clean Bandit’s Grace Chatto explains how the single came about.
“Breaking apart from someone you love very much can be unbearably painful, but finding yourself again can be a beautiful thing if you do your solitude right,” she says. “Self-care is like an art in itself and we tried to look at this in a fun way.
“The first time we met Demi was over FaceTime, believe it or not! She was recording in Alabama and we were recording in London and we recorded the song like this – over the ocean! When we finally met in person to shoot the music video, it was beautiful. She was so lovely and it was a joy to film her.”
Expectations for the music video, however, may have to be tempered a little for now; that will come in the near future.
