Disclosure chop up jazz harmonies for new track ‘Where Angels Fear To Tread’ – listen

"We’ve been completely obsessed with acapella jazz groups"

Disclosure have released a new song hot on the heels of ‘Moonlight’, which was shared yesterday (August 20).

‘Where Angels Fear To Tread’ is the third song to surface from the brothers’ studio sessions which began in May.


The song hears Howard and Guy Lawrence cut and splice an array of jazz vocal samples over a bouncy house beat.

The duo returned from their self-imposed break from music earlier this year to release their comeback single ‘Ultimatum’.

Disclosure said of the new song: “We’ve been completely obsessed with acapella jazz groups lately, and wanted to try and incorporate that sound into our music.

“The Four Freshmen where one of the earliest groups to incorporate advanced jazz harmony into this style and inspired the likes of The Beach Boys. Years later, they are still inspiring us.” 

Disclosure are currently in the studio to work on the follow-up to their second album ‘Caracal’, released in 2015.


The duo’s 2012 breakthrough song, ‘Latch’ (feat. Sam Smith) peaked at number 11 in the UK charts.

‘Latch’ was a sleeper hit in the US, reaching number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 two years later.
