Disclosure has released its first single in two years today, and it’s a light, breezy cracker worthy of the wait.
“Ultimatum” is the first Disclosure original since their 2016 EP Moog For Love, and it grooves with a primal patina on its sizzling vocal sample from Fatoumata Diawara, and it continues the Moog For Love tradition where Disclosure uses their wide pop influence to spread more underground sounds into the mix. Here is what the Lawrence brothers had to say about their new record:
Sorry it’s been a while this time… We have been missing you all immensely, so we wanted to share something we’ve been working on with you now the sun is shining, the trees are green and some dance floors need filling! A few months ago we stumbled across an amazing female vocalist named Fatoumata Diawara. While digging through her discography we discovered this beautiful sample and started experimenting with it. The result is our new song, “Ultimatum”.
Disclosure’s “Ultimatum” is out now on Island Records, and may or may not be part of the band’s upcoming third studio album.
