Disclosure team up with Kehlani and Syd for ‘Birthday’
With their latest album out this week, the DISCLOSURE boys have gifted us one more sneak peek ahead of its release with another new single. Titled ‘Birthday’, this latest release follows on from the three previous singles we’ve already heard including the album’s title track, ‘Energy’, the Slowthai/Amine collab ‘My High’ and the Fatoumata Diawara featuring ‘Mali Mali’, and features none other than Kehlani and Syd.
Alongside the new single, the Lawrence brothers have also shared a VIP Remix, only adding to the already dangerously high excitement we have for the release of Energy. The record also contains collaborations with Mick Jenkins, Kelis, Channel Tres, Common and Blik Bassy. ‘Birthday’ is a slinky, sultry cut which muses over whether its okay to call your ex or not on their birthday, and both Syd and Kehlani sound so damn good over the downtempo beats. The VIP Remix takes the song from the bedroom to the club, kicking right into quintessential Disclosure with a dance floor ready beat taking the song up more than a few notches.
Listen to both versions of ‘Birthday’ below:
ENERGY is out August 28th.
