Clean Bandit have announced that they will release their new album, ‘What Is Love?’, in November. It will feature loads of guests including Zara Larsson, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora, Stefflon Don, Tove Styrke and more.

“The album looks at many different kinds and stages of love”, says cellist Grace Chatto. “We’ve been making it over three years, during which time we’ve all experienced love in our lives in different ways and, some of us, heartbreak too”.

“Somehow this is all expressed in the music”, she adds. “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”.

Oh yes, ‘Rockabye’, despite being released as a single nearly two years ago, also features on this album. As do other previous single releases ‘Tears’, ‘Symphony’, ‘I Miss You’ and ‘Solo’.

Still musing on the record at large, she concludes: “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”.

As mentioned, there are certainly plenty of guests on the record, some of whom may indeed be “amazing”. Here’s the full tracklist and guestlist. The album’s out on 30 Nov.
