Disclosure Built A Massive ‘Minecraft’ World For Their New Album

Complete with three nightclubs - including a replica of London's famed Printworks.

Disclosure create 'Minecraft' island to celebrate new album 'Energy'

Disclosure’s anticipated third album Energy is out tomorrow, and to celebrate, they want to party with you on an island — albeit, one on Minecraft.

The incredibly popular cross-platform game lets users build their own world, and to celebrate Energy‘s release, the Lawrence brothers have collaborated with Minecraft wizzes blockworks to create an island in the shape of Energy‘s album cover.

Billed as the “Energy Minecraft experience”, the endeavour took 100 million blocks and 3.8 square (virtual) kilometres to make, featuring seven climates and lots of secrets, too. There are 13 records hidden throughout, offering up custom 8-bit remakes of Disclosure’s tracks.

There are even three nightclubs, too — replications of London’s Printworks and Ibiza’s DC10, and a version of Guy’s kitchen, which Disclosure fans may recognise given he and Howard have been DJing from their online throughout the year.

Both Energy and the Minecraft experience are launched on Friday 28 August, following a slew of (really, really solid) singles. Channel Tres, Aminé, slowthai, Kelis, Syd, Kehlani and more feature.

Watch the trailer for the Minecraft experience below, which will be readily available for a week, then available as a download afterwards, and then listen to ‘Birthday’, the duo’s latest drop.
