Disclosure compare forthcoming debut album 'Settle' to Daft Punk
Disclosure have compared their forthcoming debut album, 'Settle', to Daft Punk.

Speaking to Spin, the duo - who are comprised of siblings Guy and Howard Lawrence - said that their first LP was unlike most dance music records due to its use of vocals. "[We compared] it to Daft Punk in the sense that it's a vocal album," said Howard. "There aren't many dance albums with full vocals. We don't really know why. You need the vocals to capture your tune and lift it now and again."

The pair also discussed their formative influences, with Howard stating: "I was listening to a lot of funk because I'm a bass player. I was also into a lot of singer-songwriters like Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush, because it's really clever songwriting." Guy, meanwhile, added: "I was listening to American hip-hop mainly, that's what got me into the idea of making music electronically, making beats and stuff like that. DJ Premier, Gang Starr, Busta Rhymes... just J. Dilla, basically."

'Settle' will be released on June 3 and features the singles 'White Noise', featuring Aluna Francis of Alunageorge, 'You & Me' featuring Eliza Doolittle and the hit single 'Latch', a collaboration with Sam Smith. Additionally, 'Settle' will feature a new collaboration with Jessie Ware as well as Jamie Woon, London Grammar and newcomers Ed Mac and Sasha Keable. Disclosure first worked with labelmate Jessie Ware when they remixed her single 'Running' in 2012.

The 'Settle' tracklisting is as follows:

'Intro'
