On September 11, “Hourglass“, featuring American soul duo Lion Babe was released as the third promotional single after having the lyric video be released on Vevo a day prior.

The album features a single called “Magnets“, which is a collaboration between Guy Lawrence, Howard Lawrence, and Lorde. Listen below or via Apple Music.

When the collaboration was initially reported, Howard Lawrence told Rolling Stone, “She turned up on her own, no management or bodyguard. That’s the most equal collaboration on the record. You can really hear her sound—she has this sassy yet vulnerable thing.”

Last year, Lorde and Disclosure performed together at the BRIT Awards, where they did a combined version of “Royals” and “White Noise”.

Disclosure have also announced a four-date UK tour, including a two-night run at London’s Alexandra Palace. See the full dates. [via pitchfork]

Nick Jonas – ‘Levels’

nick-jonas-levels

Levels” is the lead promotional single from American recording artist Nick Jonas‘ upcoming third studio album.

The song was released on August 20th 2015, via Nick Jonas’ official YouTube VEVO channel. The track was produced by Ian Kirkpatrick, and The Monsters and the Strangerz.

After Meek Mill’s battle with Drake and credit being given where due, it’s funny and surprising to see none other than Nick Jonas “referencing” Meek on his latest single, “Levels.”

The chorus, “There’s levels to your love,” seems like a direct homage to the chorus of Meek’s 2013 hit “Levels”—”We don’t f**k the same girls, it’s levels to this shit.”

The pop heartthrob will perform “Levels” for the first time during the VMA pre-show on Sunday, Aug. 30. [via Rap-Up]
