Settle is the debut studio album by English electronic music duo Disclosure, released on 31 May 2013 by Island Records. Accompanied by the success of its lead single, "Latch", the album features collaborations with AlunaGeorge, Ed Macfarlane, Sasha Keable, Eliza Doolittle, Jamie Woon, Jessie Ware, and London Grammar, as an opus which equally combines the elements of production, vocality, and songwriting. A deluxe edition of the album contains four bonus tracks, including Disclosure's remix of Jessie Ware's song "Running".

Settle received widespread critical praise and was nominated for the 2013 Mercury Prize.[2] The album debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, selling 44,633 copies in its first week.[3] It had sold 165,000 copies by late October 2013,[2] and was certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) on 4 April 2014.[4] A remix of the album, titled Settle: The Remixes was released on 16 and 17 December 2013 in the United Kingdom and United States, respectively.[5]

Settle received widespread acclaim from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted mean rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 81, based on 31 reviews.[14] Robert Copsey of Digital Spy gave the album a positive review stating: "Despite the list of vocalists reading like a who's who on the Hype Machine chart, Guy and Howard's presence is felt strongly throughout, although the featureless tracks 'Second Chance' and 'Grab Her' are the weaker on the collection. Regardless, much like Daft Punk's latest effort, Settle is an album that brings some sorely needed intelligence back to joyous dance-pop."[23]

Eve Barlow of the NME gave the album a positive review stating: "Throughout, Settle will blind you with so much sheen you'll want to tile your bathroom in it. Sadly, the London Grammar-featuring 'Help Me Lose My Mind' is a bit of an unnecessary cool-down. Not to worry, Disclosuremania is clearly about to sweep the nation."[19]
