Disclosure’s Caracal Features Lorde, Sam Smith
The UK’s foremost brotherly duo Disclosure are in the full swing of things for their sophomore album Caracal, having shared the Gregory Porter-featuring lead single “Holding On” last week. As is customary in the electronic music community, a remix of the track has already surfaced. Julio Bashmore released his “Elevated Mix” of “Holding On” today, and it’s an even more jittery, high-octane take on the track. The Howard brothers told Rolling Stone that the new album is all going to be fully structured pop songs with dance music influence, but little of that subgenre’s winding, insistent inaccessibility. Perhaps that’s where someone like Bashmore comes in, peeling the layers and structure back in favor of more songs that lean more toward the dance floor’s labyrinth. Howard and Guy also confirmed that their previously teased Lorde collaboration is on the record, as is another song with “Latch” collaborator Sam Smith. Listen to Bashmore’s remix below and keep your eyes peeled for more info about their other guests — something tells me other big names are going to surface.
Caracal is out 9/25 via PMR/Island.
