Disclosure released their first song in 2010, back when both members were still teenagers, and gained popularity with a steady stream of singles and EPs. These culminated with 2013’s Settle and the subsequent crossover success of “Latch,” a Sam Smith-assisted house cut that reached its U.S. pop peak in August of last year.
Since then, the U.K. brothers haven’t released much: They produced a pair of tracks on Mary J. Blige’s recent The London Sessions and remixed hits like Pharrell’s “Frontin'” and Usher’s “Good Kisser,” but until Friday, they had yet to release anything original under their own name. That changed with “Bang That,” a new track that premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC radio show and is now streamable or downloaded off iTunes.
“As work speedily progresses on our next record, we wanted to give you guys something for the summer,” Disclosure wrote in the track’s description. “Been playing this one in our DJ sets for a while now and couldn’t resist putting it up! Hope you enjoy… So much more on the way!”
Disclosure began the year with a set aboard the Holy Ship!!! EDM cruise, where they played back-to-back with Armand Van Helden. Upcoming gigs include the Mandalay Bay casino, Detroit’s Movement Festival, Denmark’s Roskilde Festival and their own Wildlife Festival, which will bring artists like Sam Smith, Nas, Mark Ronson and Soul II Soul to Brighton City Airport on the first weekend of June. The duo also revealed that their as-yet-untitled new album will be released by the end of the year.
