Disclosure and Common have come together for a brand new track titled “Reverie.” The song is the final cut off Disclosure’s most recent LP ENERGY and comes with a visualiser featuring a meticulously choreographed dance by Masaka Kids Africana, a group of multi-talented kids based in Uganda.
According to a press release, this song marks the first time Common wrote song lyrics with someone else. The result is a vibrant track, filled with sounds of lush synths and syncopated percussions that have been tightly arranged to complement Common’s colorful delivery. The song measures at a little under two and a half minutes driven by an uplifting message. Lines like “They keep me grounded by understanding me / I say under the rain it feels powerful” and “On our conditions, no pot to piss in / We the children of a mission / When freedom calls, we gotta listen” are but a few examples of the track’s positive narrative.
