Having already debuted two huge singles this year from their forthcoming new album – the smash hit UK #1 ‘These Days’ ft. Jess Glyne, Macklemore & Dan Caplen, currently the biggest-selling record of 2018 in the UK, and ‘Let Me Live’ (prod. with Major Lazer) ft. Anne Marie and Mr. Eazi – Rudimental have now announced the full tracklist and esteemed list of collaborators on ‘Toast To Our Differences’.
With much of their summer spent on tour, as well as overseeing a coveted weekly residency at Ibiza Rocks that saw special guests like Anne-Marie, J Hus, Not3s, David Rodigan & more join them on the island, the band have also been working hard on putting final touches to an album that thoughtfully joins the dots between their remarkable, hit-making pedigree and ability to discover and nurture exciting new talent via their Major Toms label hub. A space for artists to grow and develop, Major Toms has provided the launchpad for debut signing Anne-Marie to become one of the UK’s biggest stars – her critically-acclaimed debut album, ‘Speak Your Mind’, entered the UK Album Charts at #3 on release back in April and is now officially the biggest selling debut of 2018 – and more new signings are to be announced in the coming months.
Written as an emphatic celebration of difference and a coming together of cultures, styles and sounds, ‘Toast To Our Differences’ is the product of the band’s past three years of work and boasts an extraordinary list of collaborators that can now be revealed in full. Tom Walker turns in a stunning vocal on catchy, wholesome ballad, ‘Walk Alone’, emerging vocalists like Maleek Berry and RAYE come together on the sparkling ‘1×1’ and rising singer-songwriter Dan Caplen shines on #1 smash, ‘These Days’, alongside Jess Glynne and Macklemore. Latest album single ‘Let Me Live’ also features vocals from Ladysmith Black Mambazo, an incomparable x5 time Grammy-winning South African male choral group, and hotly-tipped soul singer, Yebba, who has been heavily co-signed by global stars like Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith.
Tour de force rapper Stefflon Don makes waves on the powerful ‘Scared Of Love’, Rita Ora excels on the sleek, shimmering ‘Summer Love’ and enigmatic rapper Kojey Radical and Kabaka Pyramid spar on ‘No Pain’, further showcasing the breadth and diversity of talent Rudimental showcase right across ‘Toast To Our Differences’. Further features on the album include (in alphabetical order); Chronixx, Eli Ingram, Hak Baker, Maverick Sabre, Olivia Dean, Protoje, Shungudzo, Kevin Garrett, & Raphaella.
