UK collective Clean Bandit have released their new single ‘Tears’ featuring X-Factor’s 2015 winner, Louisa Johnson. The band is currently working on their second album. Stream the song below and purchase it on iTunes. Both Jack from the band and Louisa commented on the collaboration below.
Jack Patterson – “Tears is an epic trap-2step breakup ballad. I wrote it with Sam Romans at the piano, and over the course of a year, it has transformed from a simple piano tune into a mad beast of changing time signatures and feels. To me, Tears feels like a 1990s vision of a future breakup song. Louisa Johnson delivered the vocal with incredible power and devastating tenderness. Her adlibs are insane! She is so lovely and an absolute joy to work with.”
Louisa Johnson – “When I was approached to work with the guys from Clean Bandit I was like…YES! It felt like the perfect next step from the X Factor. I have always been a fan of their music and I think they’re so unique. It’s such a great thing to be a part of this exciting collaboration.”
