Sam Smith + Disclosure: Lightning Strikes Twice

sam-smith-omen-music-video-disclosureLatch” became not only one of the biggest dance hits of 2013, it introduced multi-Grammy award winner Sam Smith and the electronica group, Disclosure, to the forefront of today’s music scene.   If it worked once, let’s give it another go.   Disclosure announced at their Wild Life Festival their new CD, Caracal, will be released in September.  Once again, the duo are combining their “sick beats” with a slew of guest vocalists including new artists including Lion Babe, Kwabs, Nao, Gregory Porter, along with their second song collaboration with Sam Smith.

“HOLDING ON”    Disclosure Ft. Gregory Porter

disclosure-holding-onCaracal‘s lead single, “Holding On” with Porter combines techno with some vintage 90’s soul (think Haddaway).   But the record that will push the new album up the charts is a gorgeous feel-good pop single is “Omen” with Sam Smith.   Together the two music videos are 1/2 of a four part Disclosure mini-movie.    The new CD is named Caracal, any clue what that means?   It’s a black eared wild cat from Africa similar to a desert lynx.  The band loved the cat’s distinctive look and chose the obscure name for their album’s title.
