MOMENTS | Mash-up: Watch the Disclosure x Sam Smith Music Video for “Omen,” Part II of Disclosure’s Sci-Fi Short

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

Electro-pop duo Disclosure and your favorite super sensitive crooner Sam Smith reunited for their collaborative track “Omen,” and now there’s a music video to go with it. As previously noted, Disclosure had recruited Ryan Hope to direct a dystopian sci-fi short split into a four-part music video series. “Omen” will appear on Disclosure’s upcoming album Caracal, which sees its official release September 25th. It’s been a few years since “Latch” was released, and though “Omen” is slower and much funkier and Sam Smith much more svelte than ever, the Disclosure x Sam Smith team-up is still pretty magical.

MOMENTS | Mash-up: Watch Disclosure’s “Holding On” Video, Part One of a Dramatic, Dystopian Sci-Fi Short Film Epic

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

Disclosure’s Caracal, the follow-up to their 2013 debut Settle, won’t be out until September 25th, but the Lawrence brothers have released Part One of their short film. Though the electronic duo had recently released an album teaser their via this trailer, we now know that it’s actually for their Ryan Hope-directed sci-fi epic. The short film will be broken up into four parts, with the first acting as the playground for “Holding On,” Disclosure’s new single featuring Gregory Porter. If the endless string of young adult novels turned movies (of varying quality, because they can’t all be The Hunger Games) are any indication, dystopian futures are all the rage right now. Disclosure’s sci-fi short was shot in Mexico and centers around Mariela, the heroic liberator leading a band of rebels in a fight to take back the city from Robocop-esque soldiers.
