Disclosure Bring Out Lorde, Sam Smith For ‘SNL’ Performance
During the duo's performances of singles "Omen" and "Magnets" off their recently released album Caracal, brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence brought out superstar vocalists/pop stars Sam Smith and Lorde to sing their guest parts on the tracks, respectively.
Sam's soulful performance of "Omen," the follow-up to "Latch"—his massively successful and perhaps career-launching debut collaboration with the electronic duo—was first up, with the artist appearing onstage in a dapper, sleek back suit (and handsome facial scruff) for a futuristic soul-disco rendition complete with lush lighting.
Lorde was up next to sing "Magnets," her woozy, rhythmic collaboration off Caracal, live for the first time. Backed by a drumline, the talented New Zealand singer-songwriter electrified the stage with both her vocal performance and spirited dance moves. (Though, lets get real, that killer red eye-shadow almost stole the show. Almost.)
If you pay attention to the beginning of the clip (above), you'll also notice a brief but sweet tribute to Paris during Lorde's performance, in which the stage lit up in the French flag's signature blue, white, and red hues just as "Magnets" began.
Other vocalists who are featured on Disclosure's Caracal album include The Weeknd, Lion Babe, and Miguel. Caracal is the second studio album by the duo, following 2013's Settle, and was released on September 25.
