New Music Friday – Clean Bandit leads a round-up of Eurovision’s best releases this week

Friday is the home of new music releases around the world. We’ve taken the time to compile a list of songs that you must listen to before next Friday comes around! Featuring Eurovision related stars, you can find all the latest from your favourites here alongside a couple of new releases from Eurovision nations which we think you should check out. So, what are you waiting for? Dive on into ESCXTRA’s New Music Friday! We begin with Clean Bandit…

The big release – “Disconnect” by Clean Bandit & Marina and the Diamonds

Clean Bandit is an electronic music group from the United Kingdom. The then-quartet rose to fame with the Jess Glynne collaboration Rather Be. Last summer, the group began the build-up to their second album with Tears featuring Louisa Johnson. After the departure of band member Neil Amin-Smith, the group rose to even higher heights with the UK #1 hits Rockabye featuring Sean Paul and Anne-Marie and Symphony featuring Sweden’s Zara Larsson. While not an official single, Clean Bandit have given us another teaser ahead of their album release. The song Disconnect is a collaboration with Marina and the Diamonds and has been long-awaited by fans since the two artists performed the song live for the first time back in 2015.

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
