Rudimental deliver a brand new song “Sun Comes Up” feat. James Arthur out today– LISTEN HERE – as a first taste of the platinum-selling UK collective’s forthcoming third studio album currently in the works. It’s a touching glimpse into how they’ve grown, both as individuals and as a band, and the various struggles they have been through to overcome adversity and get where they are today.

“Sun Comes Up” marks the first musical output from the BRIT Award-winning group this year, released through the band’s own subsidiary label Major Toms (to which they signed platinum-selling artist Anne-Marie in 2014) in partnership with Big Beat Records in the US.

Of the track, Rudimental says:

“We’re so excited to announce our new single ‘Sun Comes Up,’ a song we wrote about overcoming adversity. We spent a long time looking for the right singer for it, and were close to giving up until we met James Arthur; he sang it and we were blown away. We aren’t afraid of taking new directions, and our new material has stepped up to another level. We’ve traveled the world far and wide and finally we feel like we’ve returned home on this album. We can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”

To date, the genre-defying band has sold over 1.7 million albums and 11.2 million singles worldwide, as well as racked up over 250 million streams in the US alone! Rudimental’s second UK #1 studio album which went GOLD in the UK, WE THE GENERATION, was released in 2015 to rave reviews, and featured the smash single “Lay It All On Me” ft. Ed Sheeran (along with a VIP Mix edit that included Vic Mensa & Big Sean), as well as the very last vocal recordings from the late, great Bobby Womack on the track “New Day.” It married an array of genres including soul, funk, drum and bass, and hip hop and followed the band’s debut album Home. That album, also released to critical acclaim in 2013, earned the group a Mercury Prize nomination and a BRIT Award.

In 2015, Rudimental created their very own UK festival, Wild Life, which won ‘Best New Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards and which, earlier this month, they hosted for the 3rd straight year.  Also in June, the boys kicked off a weekly Ibiza residency which will find them at Amnesia Ibiza every Tuesday this summer.
