A collaboration with Elton John failed to make the final cut on What Is Love? the upcoming album from Clean Bandit.
The news was revealed in an interview with The Guardian. “We realised there was a sound developing in a certain part of the Venn diagram of the album and we wanted to push that,” said Jack Patterson. “It was kind of this tropical, plastic-y, mournful sound, whereas his songs were more from the Rather Be world.”
Grace Chatto had previously expressed excitement over the band’s collaboration with Sir Elton, stating: “He was so funny! He sat down at the piano and didn’t stop playing for the whole day, just constant ideas flowing. He was telling loads of jokes at the same time.”
However, the new album will feature guest appearances from Craig David, Stefflon Don, Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding and Marina And The Diamonds.
