The collaboration between Sam Smith and Disclosure will be looked back upon as defining moments and music for 2013. With Smith bringing his unique soul to the pop scene and Disclosure bringing their brand of UK garage-inspired dance music to the forefront of that scene and into the mainstream, their work on "Latch" marked a definitive turning point in multiple music scenes, the effect of which we can still see today.
And lately, Disclosure has been teasing singles from their forthcoming album, Caracal, due out September 25th via Capitol Records. Today they've added one of their biggest collaborations on the album to that list, entitled "Omen." It's a downtempo, almost R&B track that features the smooth nu disco from the duo that's combined with catchy musings from the now superstar UK pop artist. Gathering around a piano with songwriter Jimmy Napes, the parties got together to try to recreate the perfection they found in working together on "Latch."
Along with the release of "Omen" tomorrow as an instant download with the purchase of Caracal, Disclosure has released a video with the single to continue on their video series. Continuing from the story line set up with "Holding On," the video follows the lead character, Mariela, through a militarized and futuristic Mexico City.
