Disclosure surprised fans today by dropping a new single – “Ultimatum” featuring Malian musician Fatoumata Diawara. Listen to “Ultimatum” on all platforms HERE. The GRAMMY®-nominated U.K. duo – comprising brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence –told fans via social media:
“Sorry it’s been a while – we have been missing you all immensely, so we wanted to share with you something we’ve been working on now the sun is shining and the trees are green. A few months ago, we stumbled across an amazing female vocalist named Fatoumata Diawara. While digging through her discography we discovered this beautiful sample and started messing around, having fun and experimenting with it. The result is our new song, ‘Ultimatum.’”
Disclosure’s 2013 debut album Settle (2013) and its follow-up, Caracal (2015), were each nominated for a GRAMMY Award. Both charted at No. 1 on the Official Albums chart in the U.K. The duo is currently at work on its third album.
Fatoumata Diawara’s new album, Fenfo (Something To Say), was released today in the U.S. She will be touring the U.K. and Europe this summer.
