Disclosure has been releasing a series of videos in advance of their new album Caracal‘s release next week, forming a dystopian science fiction narrative.
The newest clip is the third in the series and for the song “Jaded,” showing the not-so-distant-future rebel heroine Mariella seemingly forced into hypnosis as some old white men look on with intrigue.
Howard and Guy Lawrence jump in and out of the Ryan Hope directed piece, which also features a cameo from Sam Smith, who was also in the “Omen” video released in July.
While Disclosure’s previous singles from this new sophomore album have featured guest vocalist such as Smith on “Omen” and Gregory Porter on “Holding On,” on “Jaded” the duo’s younger brother Howard Lawrence takes the lead singing.
Disclosure has said there will be four parts to this video series, so it seems safe to expect another one soon.
