News | Disclosure | Holding On ft Gregory Porter | Island
Following on from “unofficial” single ‘Bang That’ just a few short weeks ago, Disclosure drop ‘Holding On’, the first single off their highly anticipated second album.
It’s a massive return to form for the boys, who until dropping ‘Bang That’ hadn’t released a new track for almost 2 years. This one’s very much more the sound that originally gained them their massive popularity, utilising their gospel house, 2-step and garage influences in crafting a pop/dance hybrid that’s extremely radio friendly and sure to be a hit this summer.
This time, Howard and Guy have chosen to collaborate with jazz vocalist Gregory Porter, adding the Californian’s name to a long list of singers the brothers have worked with from within the different corners of popular music. Disclosure seem to have a knack for taking vocalists a bit outside of their comfort zone genre-wise, but as with most of their tracks it’s paid off. This is unlike anything Porter has recorded before, and his powerful baritone voice sounds brilliant with the instrumental.
