After launching ENERGY, their third album, with the rousing title track last month, Disclosure returns with another bold statement of intent. The next album teaser is titled “My High,” a pulsating new single which finds Aminé and slowthai going head to head on an insanely exciting hip-house rampage. A distinct leap away from the club tracks offered on the Ecstasy EP and the more distinctive Disclosure production on “ENERGY,” the new record demonstrates the sheer versatility and innovation harnessed by the Lawrence brothers.
“We always wanted to work with rappers, we just didn’t know any and we had no means of contacting them… there aren’t a lot of rappers in Reigate,” says Disclosure. “Writing ‘My High’ with Aminé was a lot a fun. He brought so much energy to this already very energetic tune that when we got home to London in January, there was only one guy capable of matching it… slowthai.”
The official music video was shot pre-quarantine in Mexico City and Los Angeles. Directed by French filmmaker Simon Cahn (Danny Brown, Denai Moore), it features performances from both rappers.
Aminé and slowthai are not the only rappers on ENERGY. Mick Jenkins, Channel Tres and the legendaryCommon also appear on the forthcoming 14-track effort. Other features include the inimitable Kelis and Fatoumata Diawara, who collaborated with Disclosure on the GRAMMY-nominated “Ultimatum.”
