Howard Lawrence and Guy Lawrence of Disclosure perform at the Samsung Galaxy S 6 edge launch on April 7, 2015 in New York City.

The duo also discusses how its next album will compare to 2013's 'Settle.'

Disclosure's first new studio cut in two years is here. Today, Guy and Howard Lawrence visited Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show and played a new song called "Bang That." Give it a listen below.

Much like "When a Fire Starts to Burn," the new song is a house banger built around a mammoth vocal sample (it comes from 313 Bass Mechanics' "Pass Out"). The brothers wrote it in late 2014; since then, it's appeared in their DJ sets. Here's the album art: 

A rep for Disclosure assures us more new music is coming "very soon." On Annie Mac's show, they confirmed the album will be out in 2015. 

"Album 2 is very much underway," Guy told Billboard's Andrew Hampp April 7 in New York, where Disclosure was DJing a Samsung launch event. "We're still not sure of an exact date, but people will definitely be hearing music this year," Howard said. 

"In a few interviews we did last year when we first started it, we said that we weren't gonna drift too far from what we did before," he continued, noting a shift in the recording mentality. "We just continued writing naturally over time, and it has shifted a bit. There is still a lot of house and garage there, but we've tried to take on a few other different things as well."

He also talked about choosing guest vocalists for album number two:

"We kind of wait for people to come to us. Once you start chasing big pop stars, they either want money or they're just not as into it as they would be if they really wanted to work with you, so it's those you gotta wait for. But it ranges from that to literally my mate who was traveling in Australia with us singing in a bar. I personally like the bar ones even better."
