Clean Bandit & Zara Larsson’s “Symphony” Sounds Like A Smash
Clean Bandit has kindly shared an extended snippet of “Symphony,” their new collaboration with Zara Larsson, and it sounds like a smash. “I just want to be part of your symphony, will you hold me tight and not let go?” the Swedish diva belts over an avalanche of synths and orchestral instruments. “Symphony, will you listen on the radio? Will you hold me tight and not let go?” The UK group also teased the video, which finds the “Ain’t My Fault” hitmaker performing the song in a glittery silver gown in front of a full orchestra.
“Symphony” arrives on March 17 — the same day as Zara’s long-awaited debut LP, So Good. The title track is finding love at pop radio, but hasn’t had the same impact as previous singles, which is perhaps an indication that fans prefer her in dance-pop mode. Well, they’re about to get what they want courtesy of Clean Bandit. It will be interesting to see if the collab can match the success of “Rockabye,” which topped the charts around the world and is furiously climbing the Billboard Hot 100. If the preview (below) is any indication, it stands a good chance.
