Disclosure drop festival-ready vocal house track, ‘Ultimatum’: Listen

The duo's first new music in two years features a stunning vocal sample from Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara…

Disclosure have dropped their first new music since 2016’s ‘Moog For Love’ EP.

The track, ‘Ultimatum’, is a joyous, minimal affair with a marvellous sampled vocal from Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara, whose new album ‘Fenfo’ is also out next week.

“Sorry it’s been a while – we have been missing you all immensely, so we wanted to share with you something we’ve been working on now the sun is shining and the trees are green,” said the brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence in the track’s accompanying statement. “A few months ago, we stumbled across an amazing female vocalist named Fatoumata Diawara. While digging through her discography we discovered this beautiful sample and started messing around, having fun and experimenting with it.”

Having taken most of 2017 off – apart from their Ibiza residency at DC10 – Disclosure announced in January that they would be taking a year off from their Wild Life Festival in order to focus on recording their follow up LP to 2015’s ‘Caracal’.
