Disclosure and Sam Smith have teamed up for a new song called "Omen," following their breakthrough 2012 hit "Latch." Watch the music video above, which is the sequel from Part 1 -- "Holding On" featuring Gregory Porter.

Set in Mexico City, Rolling Stone reports that director Ryan Hope has planned this as a "four-part dystopian saga." Disclosure (brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence) also shared some information about how they wrote the song with Smith and Jimmy Napes:

For "Omen," Disclosure and "Latch" co-writer Jimmy Napes convened around a piano and constructed the song before reuniting with Smith. "It was really exciting," Disclosure's Howard Lawrence said in a statement of working with Smith for again "Omen." "We had three whole days to hang out with Sam and write, which are two of my favorite things to do."

Guy Lawrence added, "It's very traditional way of writing songs. We could do it at home. I'll sit in the corner making a rough beat and getting all the sounds I think we're going to use ready. Someone will think about a theme of a subject we want to talk about. It all comes together that way-and if it doesn't come together quickly, it usually never will."

"Omen" will be featured on Disclosure's upcoming album, Caracal, which is set for release on September 25. Pick it up on Amazon.
