#TBT || Disclosure – Latch (feat. Sam Smith)

Disclosure’s Latch catapulted both Disclosure and singer, Sam Smith’s, career to the next level single-handlely.


In 2012, the song Latch by Disclosure and singer Sam Smith was released. Before this no one had heard of Disclosure or Sam Smith. Completely new to the scene, they shocked charts across the globe. The song debuted at number 26 within the UK Singles Chart. From there, it actually took two additional years for Latch to gain radio play in the United States. The song was released as Disclosure’s debut single in February 2014. Throughout the year it climbed the charts and remained an immensely popular song. It went 3x Platinum in the US alone and really skyrocketed both Disclosure and Sam Smith’s career.

At first glance, it may have seemed like Disclosure and Sam Smith were “one-hit wonders,” however upon further reviewal. Both artists really began to thrive as talented parties and start doing things on their own.

It was really hard to go anywhere in 2014 without hearing Latch – it was always on the radio. I was first being introduced into dance music during this time and I remember seeing Disclosure during Hard Summer 2014, my first dance music festival. We were so excited to see them and hoped they brought out Sam Smith. Unfortunately the latter did not happen, but they still brought an incredible set and played out just about their entire Settle album. Definitely a memory I will never forget.

Disclosure (feat. Sam Smith) – Latch – Lyrics

You lift my heart up
When the rest of me is down
You, you enchant me, even when you’re not around
If there are boundaries, I will try to knock them down
I’m latching on babe
Now I know what I have found

I feel we’re close enough
I wanna lock in your love
I think we’re close enough
Could I lock in your love, baby?

Now I got you in my space
I won’t let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I’m latching on to you

Now I got you in my space
I won’t let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I’m latching on to you

I’m so encaptured, got me wrapped up in your touch
Feel so enamored, hold me tight within your clutch
How do you do it, you got me losing every breath
What did you give me to make my heart beat out my chest?

I feel we’re close enough
I wanna lock in your love
I think we’re close enough
Could I lock in your love, baby?
I feel we’re close enough
I wanna lock in your love
I think we’re close enough
Could I lock in your love, baby?

Now I got you in my space
I won’t let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I’m latching on to you

Now I got you in my space
I won’t let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I’m latching on to you

I’m latching on to you (I’m latching on to you)
I won’t let go of you (I won’t let go)
I’m latching on to you (I don’t wanna let go)
I won’t let go of you (I won’t let go, I won’t let go)
