Global, platinum-selling collective, Rudimental, have returned with their brand new single ‘Sun Comes Up’ feat. James Arthur – released via Major Toms/Atlantic Records – and it’s available to listen to now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
Taken from the band’s forthcoming third album, which is currently in the works, the release marks the first musical output from the multi-award winning group in 18 months and is a touching glimpse into how they’ve grown, both as individuals and as a band, highlighting the various struggles they have been through to overcome adversity to get where they are today.
Rudimental say: “We’re so excited to announce our new single Sun Comes Up, a song we wrote about overcoming adversity.
“We spent a long time looking for the right singer for it, and were close to giving up until we met James Arthur, he sang it and we were blown away.
“We aren’t afraid of taking new directions, and our new material has stepped up to another level. We’ve travelled the world far and wide and finally we feel like we’ve returned home on this album. We can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”
To date, the genre-defying, BRIT-Award winning band have sold over 2.6 million singles in the UK! They released their double-platinum selling debut album ‘Home’ to critical acclaim in 2013, which has since sold over 1 million units worldwide, earning them at Mercury Prize nomination. Subsequently, they released their second UK #1, studio album ‘WE THE GENERATION’ in the autumn of 2015 and featured their global smash ‘Lay It All On Me’ which featured Ed Sheeran and sold over 1.7 million copies, globally, including Gold single status in the US.
The album married an array of genres including soul, funk, hip hop, drum and bass and even featured the last vocal recordings from the late Bobby Womack on the track ‘New Day’. In 2015, the band hosted their very own, all-new UK festival, Wild Life, which won ‘Best New Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards last year and also completed its 3 year running earlier this month.
In addition to the above, Rudimental concluded their last global tour with sold out shows at both Alexandra Palace and & the o2 Arena in London – the equivalent of 25,000 ticket sales! Subsequently, the boys have embarked on a weekly Ibiza residency every Tuesday at Amnesia this summer.
