Marina (sans The Diamonds) is back in what feels like an epic wait!
As, we can only hope, a teaser for her own material, Marina has joined forces with Clean Bandit for the sublime reggaeton-inspired ‘Baby’. Joining them on the track is rapper Luis Fonsi.
The track, self-produced by the UK electronic trio during their time in Los Angeles, is a story of lost love and it’s to be taken from their long-awaited second album ‘What Is Love?’, to be released later this month.
For the ‘Baby’ music video, Marina, Luis, and Clean Bandit take on roles at a wedding ceremony with flashbacks telling the story of how they got to know each other. Clean Bandit member Grace Chatto is ready to get married to Luis Fonsi, with Marina ready to serenade the crowds with her sweet, sweet vocals.
However, not all is as it seems, as we find out that Chatto’s long-lost lover (played by pop star Starley) comes back on the scene. The music video is directed and edited by the band themselves.
The band’s second album ‘What Is Love?’ will be released on November 30th and, alongside previous releases ‘Solo’, ‘Symphony’, and ‘Rockabye’, will feature Ellie Goulding, Stefflon Don, Big Boi, Craig David, and Tove Styrke.
