A very warm welcome back is due, as Disclosure are officially back!
UK brother production duo – Guy and Howard Lawrence – have remained tight lipped since the release of their 2016 Moog for Love EP. Months following the release, Disclosure announced that they’d be taking an indefinite hiatus, citing their desire to “take some time out” and to “enjoy some much needed rest” in a letter addressed to fans.
WELP, Disclosure‘s silence has been broken by the surprise release of their brand new single “Ultimatum.” “Sorry it’s been awhile — we have been missing you all immensely, so we wanted to share with you something we’ve been working on now the sun is shining and the trees are green,” Disclosure said of the unexpected release.
The track uses a sample from female vocalist, Fatoumata Diawara. The brothers discovered the sample when “digging through her discography. “[We] started messing around, having fun and experimenting with it. The result is our new song, ‘Ultimatum‘” Disclosure said of the song.
AND THAT THEY DID! The track is a mid-tempo number that channels a jazzy aesthetic in a very chic way, indicating that they’ve been hard at work in the studio. I’m a fully ready for this Disclosure comeback!
