Clean Bandit – New Eyes: exclusive album stream

The band has taken over the singles charts this year with their dance-classical fusion. Can their album do the same? Listen to New Eyes ahead of its release and let us know your thoughts

Fusing dance music with the sound of string quartets and the odd passage of Dvořák? On paper, Clean Bandit's sound just shouldn't work. Yet as the group's Jack Patterson told the Guardian in February, "both types of music take people on a journey, with highs and lows".

The four-piece hardly need to justify their crossover sound – their place on the chart does that instead. The 2014 singles countdown has rocked to the sound of Rather Be, which went to No 1 in five countries, and the follow-up track Extraordinary was a top five hit in the UK.

New Eyes could see even bigger success thanks to the Clean Bandit's excellent ear when it comes to choosing collaborators. Their debut features contributions from Sharna Bass, Stylo G, Jess Glynne, Lizzo, Rae Morris and others, taking in everything from electronica, dancehall, hip-hop and garage – and classical, of course.
