The wait is finally over – Disclosure‘s sophomore album Caracal is here!
Let’s talk about the duo’s ultra-hyped collaboration with pop superstar Lorde titled “Magnets,” shall we?
The track, which premiered on Wednesday (September 23) on Zane Lowe‘s Beats 1 radio show, sees the UK duo steering away from their signature house influences and leaning more towards the pop arena with this innovative collab. “Uh-oh, dancin’ past the point of no return/ Let go, we can free ourselves of all we’ve learned/ I love this secret language that we’re speaking,” Lorde croons on top of the glitch-pop electronica production, fused with tribal drums and a seductively slowed rhythm. “Say it to me, let’s embrace the point of no return/ Let’s embrace the point of no return.”
The true magic of “Magnets” is that the two acts were able to marry their styles together effortlessly. It isn’t more of a Lorde track and it isn’t more of Disclosure track, it’s truly a collaborative gem. Easily one of the highlights off of Caracal – GET INTO IT!
