Rudimental Releases New Album 'Toast To Our Differences'
Platinum-selling UK music collective Rudimental released a brand-new album on Friday, 'Toast To Our Differences' - having debuted three huge international singles so far - including UK #1 and RIAA certified Gold US hit'These Days' ft. Jess Glynne, Macklemore & Dan Caplen, the biggest-selling UK record of 2018, 'Let Me Live' (prod. with Major Lazer) ft. Anne Marie & Mr. Eazi and 'Walk Alone' ft. Tom Walker. Written as an emphatic celebration of difference and a coming together of cultures, styles and sounds, 'Toast To Our Differences' (Major Toms/Big Beat Records) is the product of the four-piece band's past three years of work and boasts an extraordinary list of collaborators.
Bursting with classic house flavors, 'Scared Of Love' itself lands as a peak-time, feel good jam, elevated by Ray BLK's glistening vocal hooks and tour de force rapper Stefflon Don's sharp, rapid-fire verses, spotlighting just how bold, diverse and expansive the Rudimental sound has become - arriving today with a new music video directed by Jamie-James Medina.
Tom Walker turns in a stunning vocal on catchy, wholesome ballad, 'Walk Alone', emerging vocalists like Maleek Berry and RAYE come together on the sparkling '1x1' and rising singer-songwriter Dan Caplen shines on #1UK smash, 'These Days', alongside Jess Glynne and Macklemore. 'Let Me Live' also features vocals from Ladysmith Black Mambazo, an incomparable x5 time GRAMMY-winning South African male choral group, and hotly-tipped soul singer, Yebba, who has been heavily co-signed by global stars like Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith.
Rita Ora excels on the sleek, shimmering 'Summer Love' and enigmatic rapper Kojey Radical and Kabaka Pyramid spar on 'No Pain', further showcasing the breadth and diversity of talent Rudimental showcase right across 'Toast To Our Differences'. Further features on the album include (in alphabetical order); Chronixx, Eli Ingram, Hak Baker, Maverick Sabre, OLIVIA, Protoje, Shungudzo, Kevin Garrett & Raphaella. Please see below for full album track listing.
Rudimental kicked off 2018 with the release of 'These Days' ft. Jess Glynne, Macklemore & Dan Caplen, which now ranks as one of the band's biggest and most successful singles ever. Claiming their third UK #1 single, amassing over 1 billion global streams and going Double-Platinum in the UK, as well as Platinum in Australia and Canada, 'These Days' was also the UK's biggest-selling song of 2018. Second single 'Let Me Live', produced with Major Lazer and featuring Anne-Marie and Mr. Eazi, has tapped into the same buzz, quickly amassing over 70 million streams of its own, complete with an iconic official video shot on location between London and Johannesburg. Their summer 2017 release, 'Sun Comes Up' ft. James Arthur, which also features on the album, has since gone platinum in the UK too, selling over 1.4 million copies worldwide, and racking up 130 million global streams.
With two #1 albums and three #1 singles already under their belts in the UK, Rudimental have sold over 20 million singles and over 2 million albums - extraordinary numbers for a band who have consistently moulded new and inventive sounds to push the boundaries of conventional pop music.
