As Disclosure’s phenomenal debut album campaign draws to a climatic close, they are incredibly pleased to confirm that their last single from ‘Settle’ will be a souped-up, re-worked version of ‘F For You’ featuring a brand new top vocal line by none other than the multi-platinum selling queen of R&B, Mary J. Blige.
Whispers began about this collaboration on Sunday night in NYC when Mary joined the Lawrence boys on stage during the encore of their 3rd sold out show at Terminal 5. Much to the joy of the packed out venue, she blew the crowd away with her adapted version of the song. Mary then whipped the Internet into a frenzy of speculation by posting a picture of herself with the iconic ‘Disclosure face’ laid over hers in advance of official news of the collaboration.
The meeting of musical minds came about when Mary first heard ‘F For You’ and fell for Disclosures production. She requested the parts and devised her own vocal line to lay over the original track alongside Howard's vocals, and sent it back to the boys for their thoughts. Of course, they loved the results and immediately thought what better way to round off their incredible year, than releasing it as their last single from ‘Settle’.
The single will hit around the same time as the boys take to the stage in the UK for their biggest UK headline shows to date in early March, including a sold out Alexandra Palace in London.
