In June, Lorde posted a picture to twitter with the caption "making tunes and getting oreo milkshakes with @disclosure," igniting the EDM blogosphere as word of the epic collab began to spread. We now have our first opportunity to preview the fruits of their labor in the form of a 30-second snippet of the final product.

The track, titled "Magnet" features Lorde's signature brand of ghostly vocals set atop an infectious beat and a groovy bass line as the young vocalist croons "Let's embrace the point of no return." In an interview with Spin, Disclosure talked about the creation of "Magnet".

I didn’t realize how many fans we share. I’m really excited for her fan base to hear it as well as ours because it’s a really big collab, not just like in terms of her singing on a Disclosure tune but the whole thing is a collab, from the drum sounds to the chords. She was involved with every aspect of the song as opposed to just doing the lyrics and melodies and then leaving the rest to us. It was like someone challenging us, someone saying, ‘We can get that extra ten percent.’ The best thing about it is its simplicity. It’s just a load of tribal drums. It’s the shortest song we’ve ever made as Disclosure as well.
