Disclosure have unveiled the next single from their upcoming album Caracal, which will be released in just 15 days. The new single "Hourglass" features New York neo-soul duo Lion Babe.
The new track brings together the best of both worlds by the two different artists. The deep and chunky garage beats from Guy and Howard Lawrence ground "Hourglass," as they craft as elegant soundscape with additional synth stabs and soft pads. Lion Babe imbue the track with a soulful touch with their instrumental touch and vocals about the difficulty of love. "Eyes on the hourglass/As we sink into the sand/Time's up, there's nothing we can do about it/It's fine, love, cause I know I'mma live without it," Jillian Harvey croons.
We haven't heard a bad single yet from Disclosure in the Caracal album cycle yet. This album is shaping up to be something special from the Lawrence brothers.
Disclosure's Caracal will be released on Sept. 25. It is available for pre-order here. "Hourglass" will be released as an instant free download for those who have pre-ordered at midnight. The 15-track album will feature other big collaborations we have not heard yet with The Weeknd, Miguel and Lorde.
The duo will head out on the road this fall to tour large concert halls and arenas across North America in cities like Atlanta, New Orleans, Toronto, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and New York City, where they will cap things off at Madison Square Garden.
