Sam Smith and Disclosure star in short film about their hit song Latch

Singer-songwriter Sam Smith and electronic music duo Disclosure have teamed up with Beats by Dy Dre to create a new film based on their hit song Latch.

The short film will tell the story of how the track was written and how the Top 20 hit catapulted Smith and Disclosure into international stardom.

In the video, Disclosure - made up of brother Howard and Guy Lawrence - praise Sam's singing ability saying, "He has a voice of an angel." Smith, however, admits he didn't have a clue what electronic music even was prior to working with Disclosure.

He says, "I grew up listening to these classic songs and they've been lost from the radio for so long, I feel like we're bringing it back."

The video is the second part of the Beat by Beat series on YouTube, which UK dance act Rudimental launched earlier this year. The Beat by Beat series goes behind the scenes and gives the viewer an insight into how some of the world's biggest musicians make their tracks.
