After announcing new album ‘ENERGY’ with its vibrant title track back in May, Disclosure are sharing the latest taste of their new record, teaming up with Aminé and slowthai for new banger ‘My High’.
“We always wanted to work with rappers, we just didn’t know any and we had no means of contacting them… there’s not a lot of rappers in Reigate,” Disclosure explain. “Writing ‘My High’ with Aminé was a lot a fun, he’s hilarious and may as well be a comedian. He writes so quickly and it’s amazing to watch. He brought so much energy to this already very energetic tune that when we got home to London in January there was only one guy capable of matching it… slowthai.”
Talking more about the record, they add, “The thing that decided which songs made it and which songs didn’t was that one word: energy. Every track was written really quickly. That’s why we had to write so many songs because those ones don’t come up every day. Or every week. Or every month.”

The track features on his recently released second album ‘TYRON’.
All being well, he’ll hit up a handful of smaller venues later this year.
This time last year, slowthai’s name was in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Now, on second LP ‘TYRON’, we find an artist facing his demons but coming out fighting.
A remarkably efficient job of reclaiming his own narrative.
