Clean Bandit’s new album will feature a special guest star.
The band members were impressed by Elton’s piano playing skills. They told BANG Showbiz they’re in awe of his talent because he’s just so quick and thorough.
Cellist Grace Chatto said: “There’s loads of really diverse singers on the next album actually. There are different singers on every track. One of my favourites is Labyrinth. That was a really amazing experience and then another but very different singer is Sir Elton John. We’ve been making a few songs with him. He’s lovely and just so quick. As soon as we got in the studio he just didn’t stop playing piano – even when he was talking to us he was still composing at the same time.”
And, although they’ve managed to secure a number of collaborations for the forthcoming LP, the group – consisting of Grace, Jack Patterson, Luke Patterson and Neil Amin-Smith – don’t know when their second album will be released because they’re still playing around with different cuts.
Grace explained: “We’re still kind of finishing it off. It’s nearly done but at the moment we’re focusing on the new single that’s gonna come out after ‘Tears.’
