disclosure and sam smith are together again
watch the video for 'omen'
The most anticipated track off Disclosure's upcoming album, Caracal, is here. The British duo dropped the video for "Omen," which features Sam Smith and is the follow-up to "Latch," their collaboration with the British crooner that went triple platinum in 2013, and came out of nowhere to become one of the biggest dance hits of the decade.
Now that Smith and Disclosure are stars, expectations for the track are high, and right away "Omen" doesn't reach the effusive pop heights of "Latch"—few songs do—but is still an emotive, vocally-charged house banger that any dance floor would be lucky to have. Also, Sam Smith.
The video is the second in a Ryan Hope-directed series—the first is for Caracal's lead single "Holding On"—a tattooed and pierced rebel named Mariella navigating a cruel, dystopian future. You can warch it above.
Caracal will be released on September 25.
