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.
