Great timing, Disclosure!
Just in time for the weekend, Howard and Guy Lawrence on Thursday night released a surprise new track called "Ultimatum." It features the vocals of Malian artist Fatoumata Diawara.
“We have been missing you all immensely, so we wanted to share with you something we’ve been working on,” the brothers said in a note about the song. “A few months ago, we stumbled across an amazing female vocalist named Fatoumata Diawara. While digging through her discography we discovered this beautiful sample and started messing around, having fun and experimenting with it.”
As we previously mentioned, Disclosure revealed back in January they have been in the studio working on a new album.
Because of their "busy recording schedule," they decided to put their annual Wild Life Festival on hold after three consecutive years. They promised to "come back bigger and better in 2019," presumably after album's release.
While there's no update on when a new record will arrive, this September marks three years since the release of the band's sophomore album Caracal. They also released a surprise Moog for Love EP in 2016.
