We haven’t gotten an album from Disclosure since 2015 with the release of Caracal. But that’s all about to change as the electronic duo announced last month that they will be dropping a new album, ENERGY, tracks from which will showcase notably dank artists such as Syd, Mick Jenkins, Channel Tres, Kehlani and so much more. The album is scheduled for release on August 28.
We’ve gotten to satisfy ourselves a bit with Disclosure’s release of the EP Ecstasy, but they just recently teased us with tracks off their upcoming album. The duo released “My High,” a fast-paced, frenzied, and body-jolting tune that features rappers Aminé and slowthai. Talk about a legendary collaboration. The drop of the song is coupled with its accompanying music video, a chaotically ridiculous visual experience of an injured man on a hospital stretcher being wheeled around the city, finding himself in outlandish settings from a house party to a family dinner to a grocery store.
“We always wanted to work with rappers, we just didn’t know any and we had no means of contacting them… there aren’t a lot of rappers in Reigate,” Disclosure said in a press release. “Writing ‘My High’ with Aminé was a lot of fun, he’s hilarious and may as well be a comedian. He writes so quickly and it’s amazing to watch. He brought so much energy to this already very energetic tune that when we got home to London in January, there was only one guy capable of matching it… slowthai.”
This song speaks to the effortless blend of hip-hop and house. Don’t think about it too much, crank this song up and let yourself shake and sink into its oddity.
