"Disconnect" is a song by Clean Bandit and Marina and the Diamonds. The song first debuted during Clean Bandit's set at Coachella on 11 April 2015. Two years later, the song was released as a single on June 23, 2017, as the fourth single from the band's upcoming second studio album.

Background Edit

Clean Bandit and Marina first performed the song at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2015, two years prior to the single's release.

In an interview by Idolator, Grace Chatto said: "That song with Marina And The Diamonds is a really special song for us, but since we performed it live at Coachella we've been trying out different directions for the production. Now we're kind of thinking we might go back to the original, so there was no need for anyone to wait two years!"

Jack Patterson said: "It's like maybe 30 different versions of it on my laptop. I think we've finished one, actually — I was working on it on the way [to New York] on the plane, so I think we're going to have a nice surprise for them soon."

On 1st June 2016, Marina tweeted the band to asking about when the song would be released during a Clean Bandit Twitter Q&A. Chatto explained in an interview with BBC News that the song "had been through several permutations before they got it right". Clean Bandit wrote in a tweet that this official release is a "finished studio version".

On 23rd June 2017, Marina joined Clean Bandit during their set on the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury 2017 and debuted the finished studio version. Straight after the performance, it was released as a single on Tidal, iTunes and Spotify.
We're so exited right now, cause we're about to share with you a brand new song. We finished it last week and we released it today. It's a collaboration with one of the greatest artists of our generation. And she (Marina) actually wrote it together with Jack the first day that they met about two years ago. And we're so happy that it's finished now. <...>

Lyrics Edit

I've been feeling anxious
Ain't been feeling right
I've been staying up yeah
Staying up all night

I've been calling exes
Tryna disconnect
I can't cut the wires
Running round my head

Need to look after myself
Yeah I need to take a breath
Need to look after my health
Yeah I need to disconnect

Yeah I need to take a breath, oo-ooh
Yeah I need to disconnect, oo-ooh
Oo-ooh
Oo-ooh

I go out all night yeah
I go home alone
Sleeping in my bed
Head beside my phone

Looking at the screen
Glowing in the dark
I just wanna dream
But I can't seem to switch off

Need to look after myself
Yeah I need to take a breath
Need to look after my health
Yeah I need to disconnect

Yeah I need to take a breath, oo-ooh
Yeah I need to disconnect, oo-ooh

Feel my body shutting down
I don't wanna hear a sound
Feel my battery running low
I don't wanna be alone

Yeah I need to take a breath
Yeah I need to disconnect
Feel my fuse about to blow
Babe I need to hit the road
Don't know where I wanna go

I don't wanna be alone
Living through a telephone
Like a body covered in chrome
Feel my body shutting down
I don't wanna hear a sound

Yeah I need to take a breath
Yeah I need to disconnect

Oo-ooh, oo-ooh
Oo-ooh, oo-ooh
Oo-ooh, oo-ooh
Oo-ooh, oo-ooh
