Speaking of the collaboration, Craig says: “Me & Dan (Bastille) wanted to write a song about inclusion, love for our friends and making great memories together. ‘I Know You’ is a nice way of reminding us to celebrate life & how simple things like being on a night out with our mates really does give us all so much pleasure.
This was definitely a collaboration that caught so many people off guard, and that makes it even more special to see how everyone has shown so much love for the track. I hope you enjoy the brand new video 🎥✨”
Dan from Bastille says, “We’ve always been huge fans of Craig’s music and have become mates over the past few years after playing some shows together, so writing a song together in the studio felt completely natural. We had so much fun making ‘I Know You’ together, I’m excited for everyone to see it.”
‘I Know You’ is taken from Craig’s forthcoming seventh studio album, ‘The Time Is Now’ due for release on January 26th 2018, which, alongside Bastille, also features collaborations with JP Cooper, AJ Tracey, Ella Mai, Kaytranada and Goldlink.
Having received over 15 million Spotify streams on his recent single ‘Heartline’, as well as closing 2017 winning the sixth MOBO Award of his career for Best R&B/Soul Act, the past year has seen Craig not only complete another ten-week, sold-out TS5 Pool Party residency at Ibiza Rocks Hotel, but also a 17-date sold out arena tour, including two nights at the O2 Arena, one at Wembley Arena, performing on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury, and a sold out Brixton Academy.
