Clean Bandit released their new single Tears today and it features current X Factor winner Louisa Johnson on vocals.
Available now through Spotify, iTunes and Apple Music, Tears was written by band member Jack Patterson and Roc Nation-signed Sam Romans (Naughty Boy, Alicia Keys). Tears has an epic feel with Louisa’s powerful vocals driving the melody.
Talking about the collaboration Jack said, “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 added, “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.”
Tears is expected to appear on Clean Bandit’s upcoming second album, which the band is working on in the studio at the moment.
