Mercury Prize nominees expand their worldwide tour.

Brotherly duo Disclosure have just dropped the video for their new single ‘Help Me Lose My Mind’, featuring Hannah Reid from indie trio London Grammar.

The clip is labelled ‘parental advisory’ – surely a reference to the fringed crop top that appears two minutes in rather than the fairly mild representation of spangled London teenagers heading out clubbing. The same track recently received a club-ready piano house makeover from man-of-the-moment Paul Woolford.

‘Help Me Lose My Mind’ comes out on October 28 through PMR, backed with Woolford’s remix plus one from Pearson Sound.

The group are currently in the running to pick up the Mercury Prize for their debut album Settle – although they’ll have to fend off strong competition from a back-on-form David Bowie. Stream Disclosure’s Radio 1 Essential Mix in full here.

Update: the video has already been pulled, with PMR issuing the following statement:

“The video for Disclosure’s new single was revealed this morning and as with previous Disclosure videos, it was about the connection of people having a good time, something that Disclosure want associated with their music and what we hope people have done when they’ve seen the band live or while listening to their music. Unfortunately the video has received a few comments referencing the use of drugs within the video.

“PMR feel very strongly against the glamorisation of drugs in any capacity and as such we have made the decision to remove the video.”

Last month, Oneohtrix Point Never’s video for ‘Still Life (Betamale)’, which featured hentai and more, was taken down from YouTube.
