After a weeks’ worth of daily song drops, Disclosure have now released a surprise EP. Stream Ecstasy in full below via Apple Music or Spotify.
As noted before, “Tondo” samples the Cameroonian musician Eko Roosevelt, while “Expressing What Matters” includes a sample of the Boz Scaggs track “Lowdown”. New offering “Etran” also features a sample, specifically of Niger-based band Etran Finatawa. “Get Close”, meanwhile, is made up of completely original material, some of which date back years.
“Years ago we wrote a song called ‘Get Close’ that never saw the light of day,” the Lawrence brothers commented in a statement. “We aren’t usually ones to go back to an old idea after so long, but we never got that hook out of our heads.”
Today’s EP comes a few weeks after “Know Your Worth”, the electronic music outfit’s collaboration with Khalid. It also serves as the long-awaited follow-up to their Caracal from 2015. To support the surprise project, Disclosure have mapped out a few upcoming tour dates, including festival appearances at Coachella, iii Points Festival, Rock Werchter, and Primavera Sound.
