Ironically, it’s what we’ve wanted, consciously or unconsciously, since we first heard each of these brilliant artists, is all of them–Sam Smith and Jimmy Napes, each instrumental in the birth of Latch, and Nile Rodgers, who needs no introduction–Together on the same track. Smith’s familiar vocals lead the rest of the production through the soft, swaying rhythm and sugar-sweet strumming (presumably contributed by Rodgers), bringing together five potent prowesses into one cohesive collab. The guys had this to say with the upload:
Very pleased to present a song we made with Nile Rodgers, Sam Smith and Jimmy Napes. Was such a pleasure to make something a bit different from usual and with the legend that is Nile… Hope you enjoy!
Other than its creamy consistency, not much else is known about the tune beyond its affiliation with relative newcomer Method Records, on whose SoundCloud the track was released. As the second surprise single from the Lawrence brothers as of late, expect Together to expand past its current 2:22 state and mature into another hit by the undeniable Disclosure.
