Disclosure are releasing a new track every day this week as part of a new five-track project.
The first track, "In My Arms," is out now, followed by "Seduction," "Another Day," "It's Happening" and "Never Enough," which will be released in order every day this week, like the duo did last year for their Esctasy EP.
The new tracks were apparently inspired by the trials and tribulations of the dance music scene through the Covid-19 pandemic, but more specifically, those moments when people started (or will start) to return to dance floors. "We asked each other… what would we want to hear in those moments? What does that first moment back in a club sound like," member Guy Lawrence said in a statement (which you can read in full below the stream).
Listen to "In My Arms."
"The spark that ignited the creation of this body of work came from a place of wanting to revitalise a very fractured and uncertain dance music scene and club culture that has changed so much all over the world for obvious reasons in the last 18 months. While piecing together initial ideas during the spring of 2021, hope began to glimmer on the horizon for producers & DJ's that we may soon be able to gather together again, dancing & listening to music as one, participating in something larger than ourselves. So we asked each other… what would we want to hear in those moments? What does that first moment back in a club sound like? What does walking into Shangri-La, Glasto at 2 AM feel like again? What does a headline show at Reading look like after all the difficulties 2020 brought on our whole industry? With all these questions unanswered and with the possibility that any of these events may actually be allowed to take place, we set to work on creating something that might fit one of those magical moments some of us have been longing to participate in again."
