"A caracal is an incredible wild cat that I became fascinated with while on tour last year; I just love the way they look, their physical capabilities and their anonymity," Howard Lawrence said in a statement. "It felt like a perfect fit for our Wild Life brand too, so the Caracal made perfect sense as the lead visual for the new album and over the course of recording, it also felt like a natural title for the new record too."

In addition to previously announced guest Gregory Porter on "Holding On," Caracal will also include appearances by Lion Babe, Nao and Kwabs. Additional guests will be revealed in the coming weeks. During their Wild Life set, Disclosure performed the new track "Jaded," featuring Howard on vocals.
Disclosure also announced two upcoming U.S. concerts. The group is slated to perform at the Los Angeles Sports Arena on Sept. 29, followed by Madison Square Garden in New York on Oct. 24. No further headlining dates have been announced. The act is scheduled to play numerous European festivals through July.
