After a long silence, EDM duo Disclosure has been building buzz for their sophomore album lately with the release of singles "Bang That" and "Holding On," their first major songs to surface since the release of their hugely successful album Settle. Then a few days ago, the brothers took to Instagram to post a mysterious countdown, hinting to fans that something big was in the works and would reveal itself in three-days time.

The post had fans on the edge of their seats with excitement. Rumors flew it was a countdown to the announcement of their long-awaited sophomore album. Well, the wait is now over. Disclosure has indeed released details about their next album, Caracal, named after a type of wild cat.

Member Howard Lawrence says of the album title, “A caracal is an incredible wild cat that I became fascinated with while on tour last year; I just love the way they look, their physical capabilities and their anonymity. It felt like a perfect fit for our Wild Life brand too, so the caracal made perfect sense as the lead visual for the new album and over the course of recording, it also felt like a natural title for the new record too.”

The new album features collaborations with their festival mates Nao, Kwabs and Lion Babe and will be available for pre-order starting June 8, but won't be released until September 25. Disclosure will embark on a US tour to promote the new album in the fall. In the meantime, check out Gus Pirelli’s Disco mix of their latest track ‘Holding On’.
