Rudimental confirm new album will be released this year
The follow-up to 2013's 'Home' is set to feature a collaboration with funk legend George Clinton
Talking to Capital FM - via Digital Spy - the London group said that the follow-up to 2013's 'Home' would be out at the end of this year. "We're making the new album with lots of collaborations on there, we're really excited about it. Chapter two, the end of this year," said the group.
Collaborations set to feature on the album include tracks with funk pioneer George Clinton. Speaking to Australian radio station Triple J earlier this year, the band's Kesi Dryden said: "We actually did two tracks with George Clinton. We went to one of his gigs in London and we got to meet him afterwards, and we sent him a couple tracks and he was really liking it. His management got in touch with us, and he vocalled it, and sent them back. We're going to get back in the studio [soon] to finish it and it will be on album two."
Describing the forthcoming album, the group's Amir Amor added: "It's the best music we've made, ever. We didn't really make album one, in that sense. We started making music and it was a continuous process until we brought the record out. We're continuously making music, jamming between gigs and onstage, and that's how we work. We write all the time."
Sales of Rudimental's 'Home' went up by 130 per cent after this year's Brit Awards, where the band picked up Best British Single for 'Waiting All Night'.
