Disclosure has released a new song, “In My Arms.” The six-plus-minute track is the first of five the group will drop this week and will be followed by “Seduction,” “Another Level,” “It’s Happening,” and “Never Enough.”
“The spark that ignited the creation of this body of work came from a place of wanting to revitalize a very fractured and uncertain dance music scene and club culture that has changed so much all over the world for obvious reasons in the last 18 months,” band member Guy Lawrence said in a statement. “While piecing together initial ideas during the spring of 2021, hope began to glimmer on the horizon for producers and DJs that we may soon be able to gather together again, dancing, and listening to music as one, participating in something larger than ourselves.”
He continued, “So we asked each other… what would we want to hear in those moments? What does that first moment back in a club sound like? What does walking into Shangri-la, Glasto at 2 a.m. feel like again? What does a headline show at Reading look like after all the difficulties 2020 brought on our whole industry? With all these questions unanswered and with the possibility that any of these events may actually be allowed to take place, we set to work on creating something that might fit one of those magical moments some of us have been longing to participate in again.”
Disclosure’s most recent album, Energy, arrived a year ago. The album earned a Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album. Ahead of the album’s release, brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence hid exclusive versions of the album’s tracks within the world of Minecraft.
