Disclosure link up with Fatoumata Diawara again on ‘Douha (Mali Mali)’


Disclosure enlist the vocal talents of Mali’s Fatoumata Diawara for a second time on ‘Douha (Mali Mali)’ for the third taste of the new album, ENERGY, due out August 28.

In keeping with their international collaborators, Fatoumata – who featured on their 2018 Grammy nominated single ‘Ultimatum’ – sings in celebration of her birthplace and urges all Malians to be proud of their country.

The brothers first teased the track during their April Boiler Room session live from isolation and fans have been asking for it ever since.

Listen to ‘Douha (Mali Mali)(feat. Fatoumata Diawara)’ by Disclosure on the Official Premier League Training playlist on Spotify.

A sonic exploration of impressive proportions, ‘Douha (Mali Mali)’ transports you from the now imagined dancefloor of collective memory, over continents to distant lands to languish in ecstatic escape from the very real dire straits around us.

Disclosure have long since championed the ethos of unity and the power of rallying a global community through dance music and this new album, alongside this new flagship single strives to do just that. The breathtaking video, directed by Mahaneela, encapsulates this concept in full.

Shooting any video during a global pandemic has been a challenge to say the least but
the international effort employed here has delivered amazing results.

Filming Fatoumata plus a series of different dancers all moving together to the song all over the world was no mean feat. It was shot in 3 different countries using 9 different locations with three separate, local film crews all adhering to safety guidelines, to capture incredible rural and cityscapes from Como in Italy, Johannesburg, South Africa and New York, USA.
