On 15 April 2013, the album was re-released as Devotion - The Gold Edition. It includes a bonus disc with four tracks, two of which are previously unreleased, including a new single, "Imagine It Was Us." One day later, this version of the album was released in the United States under its original title.
The album was recognized as one of The 100 Best Albums of the Decade So Far by Pitchfork Media in August 2014.
It was announced on 6 December 2012 that AlunaGeorge had been shortlisted for the 2013 BRIT Award of Critics' Choice. Then, on 9 December, the BBC announced that the duo had also been nominated for the Sound of 2013 poll, in which they finished in second place.
Disclosure grew up in Surrey, England in a family where everyone was playing music. Their mother made radio jingles, their father played in bands, their grandparents were in orchestras. Both Howard and Guy studied music production at college. But, surprisingly, until they started writing music together, neither of them had any interest in dance. Older brother Guy grew up playing the drums in bands and listening to hip-hop.
Things changed when Guy turned 18 in 2009 and started going to clubs. For the first time, he was hearing DJs like Joy Orbison, Floating Points and Lone. Back home he presented Howard, 15 at the time, with his new discoveries and they tried their best to recreate it, releasing the outcomes as free EP.
Within a few weeks of putting their experiments online, Disclosure had an influx of emails for managers, lawyers and labels. They were setting us a task to make sure it wasn't just a fluke! Alongside Julio Bashmore and Jessie Ware they were signed to PMR Recordings, Britain's most forward-thinking UK label. At the same time they started delving into the dance music annals, they discovered house, techno and re-affirmed an early love of UK garage. Their music moved from the more twisted salacity of Tenderly to the brighter hues of Latch.
Almost immediately, some of the biggest artists in the world started knocking on their door, asking for productions and remixes. In just 12 months, Disclosure have created huge tremors in British music, creating a gestalt shift in the possibilities of pop and opening the door for a new generation of intelligent producers.
The sisters grew up in a musical family, and began playing instruments from an early age in cover bands with their parents. They began performing as Haim in 2007, but did not seriously consider a professional career for some years. Este graduated with a degree in Ethnomusicology, while Danielle became a successful touring guitarist with Jenny Lewis and The Strokes' frontman, Julian Casablancas, on his solo tours. This led to Haim resuming as a full-time operation in 2012.
The group's first release, Forever, combined with positive reception at the South by Southwest festival, led to a deal with Polydor Records and a management deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation group in mid-2012. The band began recording material for their first album, Days Are Gone, in between touring, including appearances at the Glastonbury Festival.
Kaye and Townsend studied at QES Kirkby Lonsdale.
In 2012, Bondax started their own record label, Just Us Recordings. The first release on the label was a track by fellow producer Karma Kid entitled "It's Always".
In 2013, the duo performed at a number of festivals across Europe, including Bestival, Creamfields, and Beacons.
BANKS makes music. Great music. Why not just stop there? Allow her to be a siren for a generation, beckoning for self discovery. She begs for it.
Conveying her sound seems almost unfair. It’s built on a simple notion of emotion. Perhaps that explains the near explosion of eager fans frantic to share their own discovery, ultimately propelling this songstress’ art to the top of Hypem charts.
A toy keyboard is all it took to awaken the inevitable. That evolved into a piano. The notes articulated feelings. Then chords turned to melodies. Heart-piercing lyrics cloaked in lush orchestration.
Now BANKS’ EP London applauds her arrival. The four songs introduce this budding self-taught songstress, one whose voice echoes a generation. She writes with a restless urgency, lyrically candid yet relatable, weaving vivid imagery into pop-skewed lullabies as she lures with every note, every chord, every breath.
A hypnotic blend of beats, pianos, echoes and an addictive vocal presence, BANKS slips in and out of genres with an ease so effortless, it once again serves as a reminder to leave your tags behind. Hip-hop, Pop, R&B, Alternative, Electronic… they all live in this very place. And she can be any or all. Or none. A singer. A poet. A pianist. A narrator. An artist.
In 2011, she collaborated with Chase & Status on the single "Time". Her first solo song "Go", was officially released on 25 September 2011, whilst previously being available for digital download. Her debut album From the Roots Up was released on 30 July 2012 and peaked at number five in the UK album charts.
They were nominated for a Mercury Prize in 2013, and won several awards including the Brit Award, and the Mobo Award for Best Album. Rudimental also received nominations at the MTV Europe Music Awards for Best New Act, and Best UK and Ireland act. Rudimental have achieved multiple Platinum awards for record sales in several countries including in the United Kingdom and Australia.
The group rose to prominence in 2012 when their single "Feel the Love", featuring singer John Newman, topped the UK Singles Chart, and for which they were also nominated for a BRIT Award in 2013. "Feel the Love" was also used for the opening credits of the 2013 documentary movie Spark: A Burning Man Story.
The group have released further singles, including "Not Giving In" and 2013 single "Waiting All Night" which also topped the chart in the UK. More recently the group released "Right Here" featuring Foxes, "Free" featuring Emeli Sandé and "Powerless" featuring Becky Hill.
