Clean Bandit premiere new track with Marina and the Diamonds at Coachella – watch

Singer joins the band for the first performance of their collaborative track ‘Disconnect’

Clean Bandit invited Marina And The Diamonds on stage at Coachella yesterday (April 12) for the first performance of their new track ‘Disconnect.’

Marina took on lead vocal duties for the new track – watch a video of the performance below.


Following the performance, Marina and the Diamonds tweeted a photo of herself standing with the band, followed by a photo of her wearing the bright yellow tracksuit she wore onstage with the caption ‘ALI G.’

Marina and the Diamonds’ Marina Diamandis recently released her third album ‘Froot’ (March 13).

The singer said in a recent interview: “As soon as I’d finished the [last] record and ‘Primadonna’ came out and I went onto that treadmill of working promo, I already knew what I wanted to do with my third record. I already knew it was going to be completely different.”

The south Wales-born singer also spoke about her struggles with depression and how this affected her making of the album.

“It was almost like I had been burdened by something my whole life and then suddenly that went away…” she added. “I can’t even describe how amazing it is… you suddenly realise why people are happy and why people enjoy things. I think I used to believe that being depressed was part of my personality or that I was born like that, but it’s quite shocking to realise that perhaps that isn’t the case.”


Meanwhile, Cambridge quartet Clean Bandit are halfway through a UK tour and will play at Common People, Wireless, T In The Park, Camp Bestival, Boardmasters and V festivals.

The band recently refuted Kasabian’s claims that they don’t write their own music. Milan Amin-Smith told Cambridge News: “I don’t think we’ll be paying too much attention to what Kasabian say. It seems like their comments are quite ill-informed.” He added that the only time he’s been starstruck was seeing Ed Miliband at a concert. Amin-Smith said: “I was stood next to him, but I didn’t speak to him as I was so starstruck. I don’t know what I would have said to him. Maybe ‘Give me a job’.”
