Hear Disclosure’s Hypnotic New Song ‘Moonlight’

Lawrence brothers unveil second new single of 2018 as work continues on third album

UPDATE 2: Disclosure have shared another song titled “Love Can Be So Hard,” the Lawrence brothers’ third new track of the week. After “Moonlight” draw from a cappella acts from the 1940s and “Where Angels Fear to Tread” explored the Sixties, the latest track is “inspired by our love of ’80s pop artists like Alexander O’Neil and Luther Vandross. We chopped and flipped this old classic by Princess on its head,” Disclosure said.


UPDATE: Disclosure unveiled another new song, “Where Angels Fear to Tread.” The track is centered around a sample of “Fools Rush In” and finds the British dance duo flattening time on the dance floor, crafting a track that deftly blends the orchestral pop standard with distinctly futuristic synths and drums.


Disclosure have unveiled their infectious new song “Moonlight,” the British dance duo’s second new single of 2018.

“‘Moonlight’ was written and arranged at Guy [Lawrence]’s house, sampling Swedish a capella group The Real Group’s cover of the classic ‘When I Fall In Love,'” Howard Lawrence said of the track (via Mixmag) “We wanted to bring some Disclosure deep house chords and basslines to the forefront.”

The Lawrence brothers turn the vocal sample into its own instrument, bending it and layering it around a hypnotic beat and bass line. “Moonlight” is available to download or stream on all digital music outlets.

In May, Disclosure released a single titled “Ultimatum” featuring Fatoumata Diawara, their first new music since their 2015 album Caracal and its 2016 three-song follow-up EP Moog for Love.

The duo announced in January that they had reentered the studio to begin work on their third album. At the time, Disclosure said they’d take a break from touring in order to concentrate on the LP, which is expected out in 2019.
