Electronic trio RÜFÜS DU SOL have announced a new live album, which was recorded in the desert plains of Joshua Tree, California.
‘RÜFÜS DU SOL: Live From Joshua Tree’ will feature performances of songs from the band’s three studio albums – ‘Atlas’, ‘Bloom’ and the GRAMMY-nominated ‘Solace.’ Check out the live rendition of the song ‘Solace’ below.
Prior to the release of ‘Solace (Live from Joshua Tree)’, the band teased an accompanying film for the live album. The band have dubbed the forthcoming visual as “a new live cinematic experience”.

“The idea for a film was born out on a writing trip in Joshua Tree when we were trying to finish ‘Solace’,” drummer James Hunt said. in a press statement.
“We climbed these wild rock formations to a little vista at the top… and sat to take in the sunrise,” he continued. “Watching dawn break with this epic 15-minute journey playing out, we started joking about putting together a sunrise set in the desert where we would play to no one.”
The band spent over 18 months workshopping “ideas and locations” until they finally decided on a plan last September. “We originally planned for it to be a live stream, but as the idea grew and the production got bigger and bigger, it organically morphed into a film.”
‘RÜFÜS DU SOL: Live From Joshua Tree’ arrives on March 6. It’s accompanying film will be released on YouTube on the same day.
