NEW ALBUM: RUDIMENTAL | GROUND CONTROL

Rudimental has released their new album "Ground Control," which is always packed with a vast array of talent. The 16-trach project boasts an impressive list of collaborators, including MJ Cole, Hardy Caprio, Skream, Kojey Radical, The Game and more. The album was preceded by a slew of singles, including the latest single, "Straight From The Heart," a sun-kissed dance bop featuring Nørskov that references Doolally’s 1998 classic of the same name. "We grew up raving to this classic garage record by Doolally, who used to mentor Amir," Rudimental explained in a joint press statement, “and inspired by the original release on Locked On Records, we wanted to give it a modern twist." Ground Control will be Rudimental’s first studio album since the release of 2018’s Toast To Our Differences which featured the massive single “These Days.” The album taps everything from anthemic drum & bass to woozy, iced-out house, soulful UKG and huge, festival-worthy club anthems. It is released on two sides to reflect best the sounds they explore. Side A features the album’s more soulful tracks, while Side B will be a full-blooded nod to the clubs. The band rose to prominence in 2012 when their single "Feel the Love," featuring singer John Newman, topped the UK Singles Chart, and for which they were also nominated for a BRIT Award in 2013. "Feel the Love" was also used for the opening credits of the 2013 documentary movie "Spark: A Burning Man Story."
