Disclosure have been on a roll since Monday, releasing songs every day of the week. Following the first four singles (“Moonlight” / “Where Angels Fear To Tread” / “Love Can Be So Hard” / “Funky Sensation“), they’ve closed out the suite of songs with “Where You Come From,” embracing a tribal shuffle and sampling Sudanese artist Kamal Keila as well as loops from the Habibi Funk label, which reissues Arabic music from the ’70s and ’80s.
“We seem to be back right now. It’s definitely been a while. 100 per cent an album is being made – that’s for sure. Whether or not these songs make it [on the album] is yet to be seen. We’ve been writing a lot. We reckon we’ve put together about 80 to 100 different ideas over the past year, but we have no idea which of them, if any, will actually be on the album. It’s a serious track listing job to come now. Now we’re going to start moving onto the next step and start working with some vocalists.”
Effectively, Disclosure dropped the equivalent of an EP over the course of five days, but split up and unannounced so every track got its time in the light and the anticipation kept soaring. For a time when even the surprise release has lost its impact, maybe stunts like this are the way to make a splash through all the noise in the future, or maybe they were just clearing the samples on the fly. Either way, Disclosure has succeeded in getting all the attention on them; now, hopefully they finish that dang third album, because this feels like the kind of appetizer that makes you want a nice meal after.
