Azealia Banks has confirmed she's working with Disclosure.

The rapper tweeted yesterday: "Just had an amazing session with @disclosure !!!!" previous to that message, she had written: "About to enter the greatest studio session EVAR. !!!!!"

The UK dance duo, who recently pipped Queens Of The Stone age to the Number One slot on the UK Official Album Chart with their debut album 'Settle', are just one of a number of collaborators Banks appears to have lined up for her long-delayed debut album 'Broke With Expensive Taste' which was originally due for release last year.

Back in May, she tweeted that her next single would be titled 'ATM JAM' and would feature Pharrell Williams. She also revealed yesterday that she is working with four collaborators, that the album is 80 per cent finished, that is will contain 16 tracks including '212', but not 'BBD'. "Dope collabs, new producers, new songs, new artwork NEW NEW NEW," she wrote.

In May, the rapper unveiled the intense video for her new single 'Yung Rapunxel'. The promo, which was directed by Jam Sutton, features owls, mouths for eyes, riot police and a mechanical bull – watch it below.
