Disclosure announce album ft. slowthai, Mick Jenkins, Kelis, Syd & more, share song
Disclosure released the Ecstasy EP earlier this year, and today they announced their third full-length album -- and first in five years -- Energy, due August 28 via Island. The lead single is the title track, which samples Eric Thomas, the same person whose voice appeared on Disclosure's classic "When a Fire Starts to Burn." Disclosure says:
When we found Eric many years ago, he was like a goldmine of inspirational quotes and motivational speeches. 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 album also has a pretty amazing cast of guests: Mick Jenkins, Channel Tres, Aminé, slowthai, Common, Kelis, Kehlani, Syd, and Fatoumata Diawara. Tracklist below.
1. Watch Your Step
3. My High
