I hope to include all these

"Tears" (featuring Louisa Johnson)
"Rockabye" (featuring Sean Paul and Anne-Marie)
"Symphony" (featuring Zara Larsson)
"Disconnect" (with Marina and the Diamonds)
"I Miss You" (featuring Julia Michaels)
"Solo" (featuring Demi Lovato)

According to wikipedia "Disconnect" is a non-album single but I hope to be a bonus track.

Seems weird to be including their 2016 hits but i suppose they will help sell the album.

I want Baby to bop hard. No Disconnect also seems like a surprising omission.

Curious to hear Mama though. :D

I hope Ellie's track is decent, from those I've heared only Demi's track is good. I hate Rockabye with passion

Some interesting collabs. Glad they've actually done tracks with their two touring singers, even if it's only one each. It's a shame 'Should've Known Better' wasn't recorded with them instead of the irksome Anne-Marie.

Looking forward to it though.

It's quite funny how Rita has gone from Anywhere to Nowhere. :P

Marina & Luis Fonsi??? Whyyyyy Marina :(

But on the other hand, this may just be the huge hit she’s waited for and deserves. Tbh if this flops even with CB and Fonsi, this means she’s cursed.

Fonsi is so last year, it's like doing a duet with PSY in 2014.

Interesting article on the Guardian website last week which gave some insight into their career and this album in particular - it almost featured Elton John and Gwen Stefani but they decided not to include the former and the latter fell through.

Harry Styles and Bruno Mars were also chased but they never struck a deal.

Rockabye was meant to feature Ina Wroldsen instead of Anne-Marie, Clean Bandit really wanted Ina but the label insisted on Anne-Marie and the band lost.

Wow that song being the success it was is the sole reason Anne-Marie is being featured on so many songs now and gave her momentum with her follow ups. She may have faded into obscurity without it. One big song is all it takes. :P

^ Woah, I do like Anne-Marie a lot, so i'm glad the band lost in that case :o

So the album is out now and i just had my first spin - i like it! It's quite long (58 minutes) and also quite samey, but there are several bops on there. Especially the first five songs are bops after bops. I think the Ellie collaboration may be a future single.

Haven't had the chance to listen to this yet, but it's getting slaughtered by the UK press. All I've seen is 1 or 2 star reviews. They seem to be more interested in creating great singles rather than the album as a whole, so I'm not surprised.



Playboy Style is a complete bop (bar the terrible rap verse).

They have definitely released all of the strongest tracks already and I'm not hearing any other potential singles here apart from maybe the Ellie Goulding feature.

The Anne-Marie and Kirsten Joy/Craig David features are nice.

That Tota song has such a cheap sounding beat, yet it slaps a hoe. I like.

'Mama' with Ellie Goulding should be the single this Spring. What a tune.

Agree. It's miles better than Baby and Ellie's actual single. :lol:
