Rudimental tease they’ve a new Ed Sheeran track up their sleeves
RUDIMENTAL have let slip they have another secret Ed Sheeran banger in their locker.
But the drum and bass lads, who have owned the charts with their Jess Glynne track These Days, told Guilty Pleasures they can’t decide what to do with the record — a follow up to their and Sheeran’s hit Lay It All On Me.
‘We’ve got some unreleased music with him that we’re figuring out what to do with,’ the boys shared before performing at the launch of Junkyard’s summer festival road trip, in partnership with Love Support Unite in London this week.
‘We’re long-term friends and collaborators,’ they said of Ed, adding they could create more music magic with him when he weds fiancée Cherry Seaborn.
‘He needs to come on tour with us again for his stag do,’ the boys quipped.
As for their highly anticipated third album, Toast To Our Differences, the boys warn they are turning political.
‘Brexit was happening at the time. We wanted to talk about the feeling of it. There is a lot of people in power trying to divide us… we’ve got some healing to do, and hopefully this is that,’ the lads said.
While they have a Sheeran ditty safely stored away, they are gutted their plans to team up with indie idol Ian Brown — from The Stone Roses — folded.
‘We toured together in 2012 in Australia. We became friends and he’s always been on the list. Basically he came to London, we hung out and planned to make all this music together. We started some ideas but he had family things going on, so we couldn’t make it happen at the time.’
But they promised fans: ‘It is going to happen at some point.’
