Disclosure are back with a new album.
Following the huge success of their debut LP Settle - which also launched the career of Sam Smith - the dance music duo Disclosure has announced details of its second album. Caracal will be released via Island Records on September 25 - a departure from the group's usual home at Cherrytree.

Previews of the new tracks appear to show a range of styles, from the house cut of Bang That, to the jazzy Holding On, which features the voice of American vocalist Gregory Porter. The group has also been recording with Mary J Blige on her recent London Sessions recordings. Other guest vocalists on the record include the R&B newcomer Nao, Lion Babe and Kwabs.
Disclosure has been pretty active as of late, throwing a couple of mini-festivals and parties under its "Wild Life" banner, though they'll be moving to arenas for an upcoming tour. The U.S leg includes legs at the L.A Memorial Sports Arena on September 29 and a show at Madison Square Garden on October 24. The group are also DJ'ing at the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas this month.
Still, the new album isn't pulling in entirely positive press. Sbtrkt and his art director A Hidden Place have accused the duo of copying them with their artwork for the new record, which features a sort of wildcat on the cover. In a series of tweets, Sbtrkt not only accuses the duo of ripping of the Wonder Where We Land cover, but also a series of Sbtrkt songs including Wildfire.
"Used to think they were really cute wanting to be like Sbtrkt", read one tweet.
