Clean Bandit Taps Julia Michaels for Fun New Track and Video 'I Miss You': Premiere

Rita Zimmermann
Clean Bandit and Julia Michaels

Grammy Award winning electronic dance group Clean Bandit recently tapped rising singer-songwriter Julia Michaels for an all new track, “I Miss You.” Today, the group shares the song’s visuals exclusively with Billboard.

The track comes packed with the bright symphonic elements synonymous with any Clean Bandit project, living up to the hype of an act still hot off their latest hits “Symphony,” featuring Zara Larsson and “Rockabye” with Sean Paul and Anne-Marie. Band member Grace Chatto spoke to Billboard on the meaning behind the track, saying, "It's a simple song, about the unbelievable pain of breaking up with someone you love.”

Featured vocalist Michaels is no stranger to the industry – even though she’s only 23 years old, the singer had written tracks for Demi Lovato, Fifth Harmony, and more top stars prior to launching her solo career as a performer at the start of 2017. Michaels started her year strong with solo single “Issues,” which Chatto describes as her “favorite song so far this year," before adding, “She’s super-talented and really nice too.”

The video, which was in fact self-directed, features the performers in all red ensembles dancing around the desert. Chatto explained that the group bonded over the filming process. “Making the video in the desert outside of Los Angeles was very special -- we got to know each other better in the blazing heat,” Chatto mentions, adding, “We experimented with special effects and train tracks."
