Many-stringed EDM intellectuals Clean Bandit have revealed the title of their first LP, which is set to be released on 12 May, and that title is this phrase: ‘New Eyes’.

The Warner/Atlantic-signings have made it a fortnight at number one in the British charts with new track ‘Rather Be (feat Jess Glynn)’, which will feature on the disc beside past singles ‘A&E’, ‘Mozart’s House’ and ‘Dust Clears’, and other collaborations with Lizzo, Rae Morris, Stylo G and Elisabeth Troy.

CB cellist Grace Chatto chats this: “Our first album is finally here and it feels so good to draw everything together into one piece of work. The title track ‘New Eyes’ was written in a special place in France called Nouailles, but no one was quite sure how to pronounce it and our manager nicknamed it as ‘New Eyes’, which stuck… It’s the most personal song on the album, so we gave the album the same title”.

While we let that sink in, here’s a link to its tracklisting, and here’s ‘Rather Be (feat Jess Glynn)’:
