Disclosure’s sophomore album Caracal is due at the end of the month, so the brotherly duo of Guy and Howard Lawrence have released a minimix of previews of every single track. The 7-minute video contains snippets of all fifteen tracks, with an interactive twist. If you click on the face of one the contributors, you will be automatically taken to that song.
In their interview with Pitchfork, Guy said, “We will never write a song and then send it to someone and get them to sing it. We don’t just want to tell a singer what and who to sing about because we want them to really believe in what they’re singing.”
From what we can hear, that shows in the quality of these previews.
Nocturnal starts off strong, with The Weeknd fronting the epic dance track. The bar is continuously raised higher and higher with every song offering its own unique sound. Disclosure have already made a few of the tracks available, including Holding On ft Gregory Porter, Omen ft Sam Smith, Willing & Able ft Kwabs, Hourglass ft Lion Babe and Jaded. The star-studded album also features Lorde, Miguel, Nae, Jordan Rakei and Brendan Riley.
The party atmosphere is so strong in this album that its going straight onto the playlist for my 21st when it comes out. No questions asked.
