Disclosure have been a little quiet of late, second last album, Caracal, was released in September 2017 and since then there's been little in the way of new music from the Lawrence brothers.
But Disclosure fans won't have to wait too long for new beats, as the duo have announced they they are currently working on their 3rd album and that they will be recording it this year. The good news comes at a cost, however, as they've had to cancel the 2018 edition of Wild Life Festival, to make room for their busy recording schedule.
Wild Life Festival has been running at Shoreham Airport for three years now and has become one of the highlights in the Uk festival calendar. The festival is a joint project between Disclosure and their pals Rudimental. Over the years they've played host to some of the biggest acts in dance, rap and disco.
It's worth nothing that their statement on social media about the cancelation seems to suggest that Wild Life will return in 2019, but there is no official confirmation on that just yet.

"Being able to curate your own festival with your mates and invite legends like Nas, Ice Cube and Chaka Khan to play alongside amazing new talent such as Stormzy, Kaytranada and AJ Tracy, stack them up against a host of flawless DJ’s like Annie Mac, Jackmaster and Armand Van Helden and throw parties with Elrow is literally a dream come true.
However, with a busy recording schedule ahead as we embark on album number 3 we’re going to give the green grass of Shoreham Airport a break throughout 2018 and come back bigger and better in 2019. Thanks to everyone who attended the festival these last three years and gave us some of the best times we’ve ever had as Disclosure, we’re hugely thankful for the opportunity to share that with you, see you all soon." - Disclosure
