Disclosure have established themselves as keen musical curators, and have slowly teased out featured collaborators on their sophomore album, Caracal. For their second single, brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence reunited with Sam Smith (and Jimmy Napes) for “Omen,” with the video live now on Vevo. This track, “A sleek, blissed-out anthem,” according to Rolling Stone, will be available as an instant grat with purchase on iTunes starting Tuesday, July 28, in addition to debut single “Holding On,” also available as an instant grat.

Caracal is due September 25 on Capitol Records. The pre-order is available via iTunes and Amazon.

Disclosure initially met Smith when they penned “Latch” from their debut Settle, which has since been certified triple platinum. For “Omen,” they returned to their original setting, gathered around a piano with frequent collaborator Jimmy Napes, and wrote chords and melodies, the old-fashioned way.

“It was really exciting,” says Howard. “We had three whole days to hang out with Sam and write, which are two of my favorite things to do.” Adds Guy, “It’s very traditional way of writing songs. We could do it at home. I’ll sit in the corner making a rough beat and getting all the sounds I think we’re going to use ready. Someone will think about a theme of a subject we want to talk about. It all comes together that way-and if it doesn’t come together quickly, it usually never will.”

The video for “Omen” is the second chapter in this Ryan Hope-directed series unveiled with “Holding On,” and follows the story line of this epic and futuristic tale, which also features Sam Smith. The plot continues to unravel as we see lead star Mariela amidst an exclusive dance party, in the militarized and futuristic state, shot in Mexico City.

Disclosure have announced two fall U.S. headlining shows at Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena on September 29 and Madison Square Garden in New York City on October 24.
