We analyze what exactly is going wrong with the singer's forthcoming LP.

After teasing new music yesterday (April 30), Disclosure are kicking off the beginning of May — as promised — with their latest tune. Titled “Bang That,” this wild uptempo marks the brotherly duo’s first recent song in two years — so you can imagine the hype surrounding it!

It premiered today on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show, and is based on a sample from 313 Bass Mechanic’s 2002 track “Pass Out”. It is a heavy-hitting track that moves away from the house-centric, poppy vibes of previous singles, and gives more of an edge that embodies the gritty UK sound that us Americans have come to enjoy. If the sensual hook (“Bang that / Til you / Pass out / Shake that / Til you / Pass out”), rusty electronic effects or pulsating bassline doesn’t grab you, then I don’t know what will!

“Bang That” is the first taste of Disclosure’s follow-up to the ubiquitous and all-around awesome Settle LP, which was released in 2013. Last week, the duo posted a cheeky video on Instagram showing them goofing off in the studio working on the project.
