Here is a new song by Clean Bandit

With Rather Be apparently staging an Occupy protest at the top of the charts, Clean Bandit are getting on with the business of promoting their debut album.

To that end, they've just bunged a new song on the internet. Heart On Fire is more sparse and club-centric than the current single, although there's still a little string quartet moment in the middle 8 "for the fans".

It's a free download when you pre-order their album. And here is what the band's cellist(!) Grace Chatto has to say about that:

"Our first album is finally here and it feels so good to draw everything together into one piece of work. The deluxe edition of the album has seven self-produced music videos [could try harder - Beyonce Ed] and 15 songs that we've made together with various incredible vocalists.

The title track New Eyes was written in a special place in France called Nouailles, but no one was quite sure how to pronounce it and our manager nicknamed it as New Eyes, which stuck... It's the most personal song on the album, so we gave the album the same title."

You'll have to wait until 12 May to hear New Eyes, but you can listen to Heart On Fire now via Soundcloud's subtle, unassuming new audio player.

Bonus content: Here are Clean Bandit in the Radio 1 Live Lounge playing a doesn't-quite-work mash up of Royals and Walking In The Air.
