Sam Smith And Disclosure’s ‘Omen’ Is A Secret, Sweaty Dance Party: Watch
28 July 2015
It’s here! Another collaboration from Sam Smith and Disclosure has arrived after a month of teasing, and it’s in the form of an underground dance party. “Omen,” released Monday (July 27), tells the story of a relationship on the edge, although you may not get that from its action-packed video (yes, there are motorcycles involved).
“Not like you ruled my heart/ I didn’t pay attention to the light in the dark,” Smith sings on the upbeat chorus. “It left me torn apart, but now I see your tears are an omen.” The lyrics could’ve fit in with one of the British singer’s ballads, but instead, he kicks this one up with the help of his “Latch” producer buds and co-writer Jimmy Napes.
The video takes place in a futuristic metropolis, placing Smith in a secret party with mysteriously good-looking people (including him — he’s definitely gone through a transformation). There’s sweaty, sensual dancing, tattooing and weird omen stuff going on. In the end, there’s some sort of raid from police with weird “1984” vibes like Panem’s Capitol. The clip just ends with “to be continued…” Hmmm… what else do they have in store for us?
“Omen” will be featured on the duo’s upcoming Caracal, out Sept. 25.
