However, overnight both Disclosure and Smith have teased a new collaboration via social media. Both artists enjoyed huge success with their song ‘Latch’, which was released in October 2012 and provided both acts with an early hit.
Disclosure began teasing fans by tweeting a picture of Sam Smith in their trademark outline mask, with Smith sharing the same image moments later.
Sam Smith, who recently lost his voice and was forced to cancel a string of live dates as he underwent surgery, then posted a second tweet in which he wrote simply: “New fucking music little sailors.”
In a statement, Howard Lawrence previously explained how the pair drew influence from the Caracal, which is a kind of wild cat sometimes called the Desert Lynx or African Lynx. “I just love the way they look, their physical capabilities and their anonymity,” he said. “It felt like a perfect fit for our Wild Life brand too, so the Caracal made perfect sense as the lead visual for the new album and over the course of recording, it also felt like a natural title for the new record too.”
The album, the group’s second full-length following 2013’s ‘Settle’, will be released September 25 and is available to pre-order now.
Disclosure have previously promised that other “big names” will appear on the record with Lorde recently suggesting that she has been working with the duo.
