Disclosure have shared a video for their new single, “Watch Your Step” featuring Kelis. The track is off the English duo’s current release Energy, now available via Capitol Records. The video was directed by the ever-brilliant Kid Studio. Showcasing an office party, family gathering or school dance of yore, the kind held in a community hall that are both vibe-less and excellent in equal measure that hold fond memories of just being together.
Disclosure recently launched a new Big Tree Energy t-shirt via Treeapp in support of the U.K.’s National Tree Week (November 26 – December 6) and will plant a tree for each shirt bought from their site during this time. Treeapp is a purpose-led organization with a mobile app that allows anyone to plant a tree for free, every day, in less than a minute.
The three primary areas of focus in the partnership between Disclosure and Justdiggit are Bunds, Grass Seed Banks and Beehives. They’ll work hand-in-hand with the local Maasai community and the local partner, Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT) in order to implement the work in these three primary areas. These initiatives will be managed by two women from the local community with additional women receiving education and training on beekeeping.

These steps are in keeping with how conscious Disclosure were when manufacturing the new album. For the vinyl formats of ENERGY, they produced a Supereco version, which utilized re-granulated PVC pellets in which to press the vinyl (with no loss of audio quality), a fully 100% recycled Bargesse board derived from sugarcane for the sleeve and shrink wrap made of a sustainable sugarcane-based plastic. When the album was purchased exclusively through Disclosure’s webstore, customers were able to offset the carbon emissions associated with the production of the physical item.
