‘Disconnect’ is the first new music Marina has released since she announced in April 2016 that she would be “taking a little break”.
Marina said at the time, as she completed the campaign for her acclaimed ‘Froot’ album: “It feels very bittersweet ending this era, because I’ve enjoyed it so much, and it’s been so helpful for me creatively. It’s been an absolute dream. I achieved so many things that I’ve been trying to for many years. Now, I’m gonna take a little break to do some different things.”
“I’ve been on the road for seven years,” she added. “I’ve had an amazing, amazing experience. This isn’t goodbye for good, it’s just for a short while.”
‘Disconnect’ follows a pair of Number One hits from Clean Bandit: ‘Rockabye’ featuring Anne-Marie and Sean Paul, and ‘Symphony’ featuring Zara Larsson. The electro group’s second album is expected to arrive at some point later this year.
