The British brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence—Disclosure, if you will—have their second studio album, Caracal, out today. And you can spin it, dance your ass and sweat it out right this second.
Go ahead and stream Caracal below. TGIF.
If Disclosure's debut, Settle, was starry—Sam Smith, Jessie Ware, bonus tracks with Nile Rodgers, Mary J. Blige and, again, Mr. Smith—then this one's a supernova. The Weeknd's on track one. Sam Smith's on track two, "Omen," the single with the dope video. Jazz pro Gregory Porter, age 43, is on No. 3.
Disclosure and Sam Smith have really been getting into it lately, going so far as to splendidly cover Drake's "Hotline Bling" on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. Here's hoping for more fun as the album cycle wears on.
The duo is touring the U.S. till October 24, then Europe from November 26 to December 2 and then again in February 2016.
