Disclosure have teamed up with Fatoumata Diawara for a new song titled ‘Douha (Mali Mali). The new single, which is taken from their forthcoming album ENERGY, comes with a video directed by Mahaneela featuring dancers in different scenic locations in Italy, South Africa, and New York.
Mahaneela, who has previously collaborated with the likes of Sampha and FKA twigs, said about the video: “Right now, all over the world, we’re going through an incredibly strange time. I wanted to make something that was visually beautiful, but also felt symbolic of what we’re all going through. People feel more isolated than ever and I wanted to create something joyful that really shows the power music and movement has and the connectivity it brings.”
Disclosure previously worked with Diawara on the 2018 track ‘Ultimatum’. Earlier, the group unveiled ENERGY’s title track, as well as ‘My High’ featuring Aminé and slowthai. Earlier this year, Diawara made an appearance on Gorillaz’ new song ‘Désolé.
ENERGY is set for release on August 28 via Capitol Records.
