London group Rudimental have recorded two tracks with funk pioneer George Clinton.
The songs look likely to appear on the follow-up to 2013’s debut album ‘Home’.
Speaking to Australian radio station Triple J, 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 said: “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’.
