Rudimental make album on bus
Rudimental made their new album on a bus.
The drum and bass quartet are gearing up to release their as-yet untitled sophomore record following the success of 2013's 'Home', and revealed their hectic touring schedule over the past few years meant they had to create the majority of the LP on the road.
They explained: "We've been playing shows everywhere and making a record as we've been doing it.
"We had a studio bus in America, so we made it on an actual bus, a lot of it. We met some amazing singers on the way and we picked up a lot of new inspirations as well, so it's better than the last for us.
"We kind of started making it as soon as we finished and released the first one, we were making it straight away, and we didn't stop touring. We carried on touring."
The four-piece group - featuring Piers Agget, Amir Amor, Kesi Dryden and DJ Locksmith - were speaking ahead of the premiere of their new single, 'Never Let You Go', which will be released in the UK on 14 June, and which they described as a "feel-good tune".
Piers told BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac: "Picture yourself in America, on tour with Ed Sheeran, that's what we were doing. We had a studio bus, and Ed Sheeran introduced us to this guy who is Foy Vance, who's the singer, and we wrote this tune and it's a feel-good tune. We wanted to have that festival moment again.
"It amplifies everything Rudimental is about, positivity, wanting to get up and rave, enjoy life, and it's got all of those elements in it."
