The young British dance duo Disclosure drew nearly universal acclaim this year with their exuberant debut album, "Settle."
But if there's one guy right now with more club-scene mojo than Guy and Howard Lawrence, it's Nile Rodgers, the influential Chic guitarist whose guest turn in Daft Punk's summer smash "Get Lucky" has introduced him to a fresh generation of groove-seekers.
So it makes all kinds of sense that the Lawrence brothers would enlist Rodgers for a new single on their label Method Records. Fortunately for us, the collaboration repays the knee-jerk interest it was designed to cultivate.
As its soft-focus cover art suggests, "Together" is a slinky, 1980s-style soul-funk jam with Rodgers' inimitable guitar licks and words about unwinding over a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. In addition to the Chic founder, the song features Sam Smith, who sang Disclosure's "Latch," and Jimmy Napes, who co-wrote that highlight from "Settle."
Listen to "Together" below.
