Over the last seven years, Disclosure has given the world some amazing music -- collabs with artists including Sam Smith, The Weeknd, and Lorde to name a few. But if you're a fan hoping for new music, you may have to wait quite a while before you hear a new album from the duo. 

Guy and Howard Lawrence announced in a hand-written note to fans that they are "going to be taking some time out" from music, after a few things they have planned for this year.

In their note, they thanked fans for their support over the last seven years, and revealed that they do have a few special things planned this year, but that they would be taking a little hiatus. But not to worry, because the note also mentions that the guys WILL be back. In other words, it's not goodbye, but it's see you later. Read the full note below:

"Thank you all so much for your support over the last 7 years. 

We were 15 and 18 when we began this incredible journey and it's been filled with shows bigger and better than our childhood minds could have ever imagined, amongst many other unbelievable moments and achievements. 

We really cannot thank every single one of you enough. You changed our lives forever and enable us to do what we love best on this planet.

This year, we are only going to do a few special things including the return of our festival Wild Life and a few other bits we can't mention just yet.

For the most part however - we're going to be taking some time out and enjoying some much needed rest.

We will be back! ... but until then ... lot's of love, Guy & Howard xx"
