2020 may seem disastrous for the music industry as a whole, but new music from Disclosure serves as a delightful distraction. The electronic UK duo started off the new year and decade strong back in February with “Know Your Worth,” their second collaboration with the talented Khalid. “Know Your Worth,” was a fun and fantastic feel good anthem that has reached 120 million streams on Spotify. There must be something special about a leap year, because only a few weeks later they teased and released their “Ecstasy EP.” The 5 track EP explored the duo’s interests in African influences, as well as early 70’s disco, none of which will appear on their new album.
Almost half-way through one of the worst years for many of us, Disclosure is back once again to save us from the mundane with the announcement of their 3rd LP and new single “Energy.” The 11 track album is set to release on August 28th, 2020 on Capitol Records and will feature contributions and performances from Aminé, Blick Bassy, Channnel Tres, Common, Fatoumata Diawara, Kehlani, Kelis, Mick Jenkins, slowthai & Syd.

The high energy (no pun intended) album titled single “Energy,” features preacher Eric Thomas, whose voice listeners may recognize as the sample behind their popular song “When a Fire Starts to Burn.” Its catchy sample and groovy beat capture the listeners attention right at the start from the “Whaddup whaddup?” intro. As the song continues, the inspirational lyrics from Thomas combined with Disclosure‘s drum kick production make for a wonderful piece of motivational music.
