Rather Be is a song by British electronic group Clean Bandit, featuring vocals from Jess Glynne. The track was released on 17 January 2014 as the fourth single from the group's upcoming debut studio album, New Eyes. The song debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, and is the fastest-selling single of 2014 so far, and the highest selling January single since "Spaceman" by Babylon Zoo, which reached number one in 1996. The song has spent four weeks at number one, selling over 977,000 copies since release. The video for Rather Be was made by the group and features Haruka Abe as a Japanese fan of the band. The band comments: "The video is about a Japanese fan of the band who becomes delirious and has hallucinations of band members and our logo appearing unexpectedly in her daily life as a chef. Filming in Tokyo was an amazing experience: we spent almost a week there and everyone was so helpful. We made it ourselves as always, which was quite scary as we've never produced anything so far away before. We had a bit of trouble filming the scene on the train though. Turns out it's considered incredibly rude to make noise on a train so when we started dancing around to the track in the carriage with the extras, it didn't go down well! Got shouted at."
