Clean Bandit - Clean Bandit want Craig David collaboration

Clean Bandit want Craig David to come out of retirement for a collaboration.

The 'Rather Be' hitmakers are enjoying their second week at the top of the UK Official Singles Chart and have admitted they'd love to work with the 'Re-Rewind' singer whose last album 'Signed Sealed Delivered' was released nearly four years ago.

Lead singer Grace Chatto said: ''Craig David is the singer we'd love to work with most. It's controversial, maybe, but he's got a great voice. We're big into that old UK garage sound and Craig was the best.''

Although they haven't managed to coax him out of retirement in time for their debut album 'New Eyes' - which is set to be released on May 12 - they have been working with another garage legend, 'Greater Love' singer Elizabeth Troy.

Grace told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Elizabeth is now with us all the time and we just made a track called 'Heart On Fire' with her that's a garage tribute.''

The electronic quartet - which also features Jack Patterson, Luke Patterson and Milan Neil Amin-Smith - have also collaborated with other artists who help the album feature a mixture of different genres.

Grace added: ''There's a song we've written with a US rapper called Lizzo ... one with Stylo G that's got a dance hall element to it.

''It's a big hotchpotch of different styles but a constant sound runs right through it.''
