Disclosure premiere newest single ‘Moonlight’ on BBC Radio 1
To say Disclosure has remained under-the-radar over the past year would be an understatement. The British house trailblazers did previously announce a hiatus period last year following the release of their second studio album, Caracal. But the Lawrence brothers returned when they surprise-released a jazz-inspired number, “Ultimatum.”
Now it’s becoming more apparent that Disclosure has emerged from the studio with what may be brand new album material. The UK brotherly duo have just released another new single, titled “Moonlight,” which draws it’s inspiration from mid-century composer Victor Young’s “Moonlight Serenade (Summer Love).” Why else would the duo include their signature silhouette traced over the late composer’s portrait?

Based on the song’s distorted instrumentals and infectious, mid-tempo house vibe, it seems Guy and Howard Lawrence are taking musical notes out of the classical playbook.
“Moonlight was written and arranged at Guy’s house, sampling Swedish acapella group ‘The Real Group’s’ cover of the classic “When I Fall In Love.” We wanted to bring some Disclosure deep house chords and basslines to the forefront…” – Disclosure
