Lorde, Sam Smith to Appear on Disclosure’s Upcoming Albumby Ali Szubiak | PopCrush
While Lorde first hinted at a possible collaboration with Disclosure when she tweeted about “making tunes” and drinking milkshakes with them a few weeks ago, it was unclear at the time where the collaboration would end up, if it was released at all.
Speaking with Rolling Stone, Howard Lawrence confirmed that the last-minute track will be featured on the album, saying, “[Lorde] turned up on her own, no management or bodyguard. That’s the most equal collaboration on the record. You can really hear her sound — she has this sassy yet vulnerable thing.”
Disclosure also elaborated on their upcoming collaboration with Sam Smith, a smart move considering the success of their first hit with the immensely popular “Latch.” Howard said working with Smith again “…was really exciting, ’cause we hadn’t seen him in so long. We had three whole days to hang out with Sam and write, which are two of my favorite things to do.”
As for the sound of the album, Guy Lawrence says they were more interested in creating pop songs this time around. He said, “There’s not any really club music on this one. It’s all very club-influenced, because of the beats, but every song is like ‘Latch’ or ‘White Noise’ — a fully structured pop song.”
Caracal will be released on September 25. In the meantime, you can check out the music video for Disclosure’s first single “Holding On,” the first in a series of four videos in an upcoming short-film also titled Caracal.
