London Grammar recently returned with ‘Baby It’s You’, their first track since the release of their 2017 album, ‘Truth Is A Beautiful Thing’. NME gave the album a four-star review upon its release, saying “there’s a refreshing amount of stylistic variation compared to the band’s two-million-selling 2014 debut ‘If You Wait’”.
Last year, London Grammar also collaborated with Flume on his track, ‘Let You Know’.
“Working with [Flume] was an honour because he pushes the boundaries of electronic music like nobody else. He’s the kind of electronic artist who will be around forever. I love our song we did together,” frontwoman Hannah Reid said at the time.
