DJ Claptone has summonsed Seal and Barry Manilow for some help on his third album ‘Closer’.

Barry Manilow will feature on the track ‘Nobody’ while Seal is head on ‘Just A Ghost’. Manilow said he did it because he was “looking for a Dusty Springfield/Pet Shop Boys moment”.

The album will also feature Australia’s Mansionair and Sweden’s Peter, Bjorn & John.

The first single ‘Wake Up’ has James Vincent McMorrow featured.

Claptone says, “I am a perfectionist full stop. I wrote those songs and I love those songs. And I am very happy with the outcome. Here is so much substance. I love to work with unique voices, unique characters. This pushes me to deliver the best in production as well.”
