Clean Bandit Shares Their New Single ‘Tick Tock‘ Featuring Pop Star Mabel and LA Rapper 24kGoldn
The New Single Was Written by Clean Bandit, Mabel, and Kamille (Clean Bandit ‘Solo’, Mabel ‘Don’t Call Me Up’), and produced by Grace and Jack of Clean Bandit alongside Mark Ralph (Years & Years, Sigala), ‘Tick Tock’ marks Clean Bandit’s first official release since 2018 and an exciting new chapter for the trio.
Teaming-up with their long-time friend, Mabel, and featuring LA-based rapper, 24kGoldn, Clean Bandit have utilized their pop formula to produce something that’s undeniably infectious and uniquely theirs.
The accompanying official video – which has been solely directed by the band – further reaffirms Bandit as one of pop’s most exciting visionaries. Playing on the song’s narrative of ‘obsession’, the abstract visual transitions through multiple rooms, each filled with the respective band member’s favorite things.
Over the past few months, in-between recording, Clean Bandit have used their vast platform to not only unite their fans from around the world but to help fundraise amidst the Covid-19 pandemic and nationwide lockdown. Curating live, weekly ’House Party’ club nights on their YouTube channel, the band also joined forces with an array of charities for exclusive performances – most recently, they hosted their own virtual festival in tandem with Global Citizen to help raise awareness for the global hunger crisis.
Livestreamed on YouTube for 12 hours and featuring their favorite artists from across the globe (including their ‘Rockabye’ collaborator, Sean Paul), it included a very special back-to-back set from the band and UK No.1 DJ/producer, Joel Corry.
Further activity included a performance for Hospitality for Heroes / International Nurses Day, with the other taking shape as a remodeling of their global hit ‘Symphony’ in aid of Comic Relief / BBC 1’s ‘The Big Night In’: the track featured vocals from UK-based community choirs alongside a host of household names including Zara Larsson (who provided vocals on the original recording), Emeli Sande, Mahalia and Tom Grennan.
