Disclosure stole music headlines in the early morning hours of Monday, February 24, announcing on their Instagram that a new live mix—and music—was en route. While they were clear on details around streaming the “Kitchen Mix,” something else passed slyly under-the-radar: the first single off their forthcoming third album, “Ecstasy.” As of writing time, the single seems exclusive to Tidal, and was first announced by Zel McCarthy on Twitter.
The preview alone shows an instant anthem true to its name; the duo have gone back to their deep house roots, assembling classic stabs, bright synth riffs, and a hint of funk and disco into a four-to-the-floor arrangement built for the afterhours. If anything merits a Tidal purchase, it’s “Ecstasy.”
I'm really excited for everyone to find out about a particular surprise music release happening tomorrow and I would totally tell you what it is now but I kinda forget if I'm allowed to or not. 🤐
