Disclosure have revealed that they are yet to meet Lorde, despite the fact they will perform together at the Brit Awards tomorrow (February 19).

The two acts were confirmed to be appearing at the ceremony together earlier this year after an image was revealed on the ceremony's Twitter account showing the New Zealand pop singer with Disclosure's trademark artwork drawn on her face.

However, that remains the closest brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence have got to the New Zealand chart topper after they told the Daily Star that they will get minimal rehearsal time for their live collaboration. "Its been tough getting things ready as we've been on the road," said Howard. "So we've been constantly on the phone with Lorde, organising stuff. It was somebody else's idea to hook up so we haven't even met her yet."

Explaining how technology has helped bridge the divide, Howard continued: "We've only been able to communicate remotely or through Skype because we've been so far away. We get a few hours rehearsal before the performance so hopefully it will come together."

Disclosure are up for four awards at the ceremony, which takes place tomorrow (February 19) at London's O2 Arena and will be broadcast on ITV, including Best British Group, British Breakthrough Act, and Album Of The Year for their debut LP 'Settle'. Lorde is up for Best International Solo Artist.

Artists confirmed to appear at the Brit Awards 2014 so far are Pharrell, Arctic Monkeys, Katy Perry, Ellie Goulding, Bruno Mars, Bastille and Rudimental.

Arctic Monkeys are nominated for Best British Group and Best Album. David Bowie and James Blake will compete with Jake Bugg for British Male Solo Artist. Haim have been nominated for the International Group award and are up against Kings Of Leon, Daft Punk and Arcade Fire in the category. Disclosure and Bastille have received the most nominations, with four apiece. Click here for a full list of nominations.

The event will be hosted by James Corden. Philip Treacy, the Irish-born, London-based hat maker and designer, has designed this year's Brit Award statue.
