Clean Bandit‘s collaboration with Elton will likely appear on their next album.
The chart-topping electronic trio – comprised of Grace Chatto and brothers Jack and Luke Patterson – put off releasing their song with the pop star as they felt it was ”too good” for their 2018 LP What Is Love? – which features Ellie Goulding and Rita Ora.
But after months of teasing the track, they’ve revealed they are going to make their next record ”stylistically different” to make way for their song with Elton, which they promised will be released before he finishes his retirement tour.
Cellist Grace told the Daily Star: ”We have a lot of new songs including the one with Elton John but we kind of thought it was too good for our album.
”So the next album is going to be stylistically different, we want to get him before he retires, well we already have the recording.”
Grace has previously talked about working with the older performer. She said, ”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.”
