Published May 21, 2020Disclosure have announced plans for their follow-up to 2015's sophomore effort Caracal with a new full-length record titled ENERGY. It arrives on August 28 via Capitol Records.
The album features appearances by Kelis, slowthai, Mick Jenkins, Channel Tres, Aminé, Fatoumata Diawara, Kehlani, Syd, Common and Blick Bassy.
In addition to their album announcement, Disclosure have shared the record's title track alongside its Kid. Studio-directed music video. The song prominently features the voice of preacher/motivational speaker Eric Thomas, who the duo call "inspirational."
They elaborated further in the following statement:
Even if he was speaking to a room of five, it was like he was addressing a stadium. He has an immense presence and energy about him that translates so well into music — especially house music. This time, we cut up various speeches to make something that makes sense. What he says is basically the whole concept for the record, that's why it became the title track.
The English dance duo last released their EP Ecstasy earlier this year.
