Disclosure Announces Sophomore Album ‘Caracal,’ Out September 25
Disclosure will release its sophomore album Caracal on September 25. Today (June 6), the U.K. dance duo posted a black-and-white video announcing the record’s title and release date, featuring actual caracals. (These big cats are often identified by their pointy ears with tufts of fur.)
On May 26, Disclosure released “Holding On” featuring jazz vocalist Gregory Porter — Caracal‘s debut single, and the second sign (also including buzz track “Bang That”) of its big return. Less than two weeks later on June 5, Disclosure hinted that it will feature electronic soul duo Lion Babe on another track.
Caracal follows Disclosure’s 2013 debut Settle. Its revamped version of ’90s house music was so convincing that it tipped listeners onto Sam Smith and inspired Mary J. Blige to reach out and help rerecord hit single “F for You.” The veteran R&B singer later reunited with Disclosure for The London Sessions, one of our favorite albums of 2014.
