Rudimental released their debut album ‘Home’ in 2013, which included the singles ‘Spoons’, ‘Feel the Love’, ‘Not Giving In’, ‘Waiting All Night’, ‘Right Here’, ‘Free’, ‘Powerless’, and ‘Give You Up’.

The album features guests like John Newman, Becky Hill and Emeli Sandé and was subsequently nominated for a Mercury Music Prize.

In other news, Rudimental will be releasing their new single ‘Break My Heart’ this Friday.


Elsewhere, Kaiser Chiefs shared their new single ‘How 2 Dance’ earlier this month, which was produced by former Rudimental member Amir Amor. The track is the first taste of the Leeds five-piece’s next LP, which will be the follow-up to July 2019’s ‘Duck’.

Speaking to NME, frontman Ricky Wilson said: “Amir’s just reminded us that all you have to do is just say what you see: it’s very simple. All you do is make music that makes you happy. We’re doing that again.”
