It's been two years since Disclosure's last album Settle was released. Remember Latch with vocals by Sam Smith? Ever since that hit single, we've had high expectations for the brothers behind the band, Guy and Howard Lawrence.

Their second album Caracal boasts of a stellar track list of collaborations with other artists such as The Weeknd, Sam (again) and Miguel to name a few.

Also included on the list is the queen of darkness herself, Lorde who co-wrote and voices Disclosure's new song Magnets. The Yellow Flicker Beat singer premiered the track on Wednesday on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show.

"She turned up on her own, no management or bodyguard," said Howard on working with Lorde. "That's the most equal collaboration on the record. You can really hear her sound – she has this sassy yet vulnerable thing." And what about the album?

"There's not really any club music on this one," said Guy. "It's all very club-influenced, because of the beats, but every song is like 'Latch' or 'White Noise' – a fully structured pop song."

That's interesting. While Disclosure's album is available for download on iTunes now, Lorde is still working on her own LP. "The challenge for me as a songwriter is, 'How do I tell all these friends that I've made around the world how I'm feeling, while still making something they can listen to and relate to going to college and leaving home or whatever?'" she said.
