Main article: Sirens (Gorgon City album)

On 12 May 2013, they released "Intentions", featuring Clean Bandit. On 26 January 2014, they released "Ready for Your Love" featuring MNEK. The song is their highest-charting song to date, entering the UK Singles Chart at number four. On 23 March 2014, they released "There Is No Other Time", a collaborative single with indie rock group Klaxons.[3] On 26 May 2014, they released "Here for You", the second single from their debut studio album. The song entered the UK Singles Chart at number seven. They produced Jess Glynne's single "Right Here", which was released on 6 July 2014. They remixed the song "Back 2 the Wild" by Basement Jaxx in August 2014 for the album Junto. The third single from their debut studio album, "Unmissable", premiered on MistaJam's 1Xtra show on 21 July 2014. The song entered the UK Singles Chart at number nineteen. The album, Sirens was released on 6 October 2014 and peaked at number 10 on the UK Albums Chart.[4] A compilation album alongside Pete Tong, entitled All Gone Pete Tong and Gorgon City Miami 2015, was released on 22 March 2015. The compilation features two exclusive tracks from Gorgon City: "Sky High" and "The Terminal".[5]

2015–present: Kingdom

Kingdom is set to be Gorgon City's second studio album. It is also set to be a double-album, with part one being released in August 2016. Revealed collaborations on the album so far are set to be Laura Welsh, Yasmin, Katy Menditta, MNEK, Vaults, Tink, Mikky Ekko and Wyclef Jean.

At the beginning of 2015, shortly after releasing the last single from their debut studio album, entitled Sirens, which was "Go All Night", featuring vocals from Jennifer Hudson, they released a new single, which was called "Saving My Life", featuring vocals from musician ROMANS. This sparked much interest about the pair making more material for a second studio album.

A year later, in April 2016, they released the official audio of the lead single "All Four Walls", featuring vocals from British band Vaults. After releasing the single, the pair confirmed that their second studio album is titled Kingdom and is set to come in two parts, with the first one being released in August 2016. Afterwards, the second single from the album was released, entitled "Impaired Vision", featuring vocals from Tink and Mikky Ekko. In between releasing the singles, promotional singles were also released, entitled "Blue Parrot", "Doubts", and "Smoke", both of which will appear on the album. "Zoom Zoom" was released as the third single, featuring vocals from Wyclef Jean.
