Listen To A Leaked Preview Of Disclosure & Lorde’s Upcoming Collab ‘Magnets’

As we inch ever closer to the release of Caracal, Disclosure‘s second, ‘guest-heavy’ album, more and more news continues to drip out to us. We’ve already heard Sam Smith on Omen among other collaborators, with the latest to let slip being Lorde.

The song is titled Magnets and Disclosure’s Guy and Howard Lawrence describe as the most equal collaboration on the album. From what we’ve heard, that figures. The short clip that has surfaced online showcasing Lorde’s vocal talents sitting perfectly over the off kilter beats of the brothers Lawrence.

Have a listen here.

Speaking to Spin recently the brothers detailed how involved Lorde was in recording the song.

“It’s a really big collab, not just like in terms of her singing on a Disclosure tune but the whole thing is a collab, from the drum sounds to the chords. She was involved with every aspect of the song as opposed to just doing the lyrics and melodies and then leaving the rest to us.

“It was like someone challenging us, someone saying, ‘We can get that extra ten percent.’ The best thing about it is its simplicity. It’s just a load of tribal drums. It’s the shortest song we’ve ever made as Disclosure as well.”

With Caracal due for release next Friday 25th September, you won’t have to wait too long until you can wrap your ears around the full version of Magnets for yourselves. Plus, with Disclosure hitting our shores for Falls Festival and Southbound at the end of the year, who knows whether we’ll see the brothers team up with the cross Tasman songstress on a stage here anytime soon.
