New Eyes

Songfacts®:

  • The title track of Clean Bandit's debut album was written in a place in France called Nouailles. Cellist Grace Chatto recalled: "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."
  • The song features the voices of Clean Bandit bass guitarist and keyboardist Jack Patterson as well as US rapper Lizzo.
