"Symphony" is a song by British classical crossover band Clean Bandit featuring Swedish singer Zara Larsson. It is the third single from Clean Bandit's second studio album, What Is Love? (2018). The song was also released as the sixth single from Larsson's second studio album, So Good (2017).[2][3] The song is the final track on the album.[4] The single peaked at the top of the UK Singles Chart, becoming Larsson's first number one on the chart and Clean Bandit's third. Outside the United Kingdom, the single also topped the chart in Larsson's native Sweden, as well as in neighbouring Norway.

Music video

The song's music video was premiered the same day the song was released, on 17 March 2017. It was directed by Clean Bandit's members Grace Chatto and Jack Patterson and features Larsson in a glittery dress backed by Clean Bandit and an orchestra while an emotional story plays out.

The directors have explained in the "Making of" video and in interviews that the video features a gay couple and "tells the tragic story of a conductor who loses his boyfriend in a bicycle crash. The conductor leads the symphony orchestra that we [Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson] are part of."[5] Singer Zara Larsson has spoken about why they wanted to specifically feature a black gay couple in the video.[6]. Some viewers have read the two men as father and son.[7][8]

The video starts off with a young man riding his bike and cuts to a crash scene. The next scenes show the man and his partner engaged in various activities, intercalated by scenes of the surviving partner grieving and visiting the spots they used to go together. The surviving partner then begins to write music again as we find out he is a composer and his late partner was his inspiration. By the end, he has composed a beautiful symphony in his late partner's memory. The video ends with him looking out into the crowd while his deceased lover looks on proudly.[3]

As of November 2018, the video has over 765 million views on YouTube.[9]

Live performances

Clean Bandit and Larsson gave their first live performance of the song on The Voice UK on 18 March 2017.[1]

A performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon followed on 21 April 2017.[10]

Notable uses
