Shooting any video during a global pandemic is challenging, but the international effort employed here has delivered amazing results. Filming Fatoumata plus a series of different dancers – all moving together to the song, all over the world – was no mean feat. The video was shot in three countries using nine different locations with three separate local film crews, all adhering to safety guidelines. Together, they captured remarkable rural and cityscapes in Como, Italy, Johannesburg, South Africa and New York.
Disclosure launched ENERGY, their third album, with the carnival-infused title track
featuring Eric Thomas in May and followed up with another bold statement of intent in June: “My High”
ft. Portland’s Aminé and Northampton’s slowthai going head to head on an insanely exciting hip-house rampage. Fans who pre-order the album digitally will instantly receive “Douha (Mali Mali)” plus “My High” and the title track. Set for August 28 release, ENERGY will also be available on vinyl, CD and cassette.
This year marks 10 years since Disclosure debuted with the single “Offline Dexterity.” In that decade, Guy and Howard Lawrence, who are still in their 20s, have released two albums – Settle (2013) and Caracal (2015) – clocked up 5.1 billion streams and 4.8 million album sales, received five GRAMMY nominations, sold 500,000 tickets to their headline shows and topped festival bills all over the world. Both of their full-length albums topped the U.K. Official Albums chart and received GRAMMY nominations for Best Dance/Electronic Album. Settle was named the No. 1 dance album of the decade by Billboard. A pair of EPs – Moonlight and Ecstasy – followed.
