Rudimental confirm new album will be out this year
Rudimental have confirmed that the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Home’ will be out this year.
Speaking to Capital FM, Rudimental confirmed its release, and claimed it’s some of the best music they’ve ever made.
Amir Amor says: “It’s the best music we’ve made, ever. We didn’t really make album one, in that sense. We started making music and it was a continuous process until we brought the record out. We’re continuously making music, jamming between gigs and onstage, and that’s how we work. We write all the time.”
There is also due to be a number of collaborations on the second LP, including two with George Clinton.
In an interview earlier this year they explained the process of working with Clinton: “We went to one of his gigs in London and we got to meet him afterwards, and we sent him a couple tracks and he was really liking it.
“His management got in touch with us, and he vocalled it, and sent them back. We’re going to get back in the studio [soon] to finish it and it will be on album two.”
The new album will be out at the end of this year, although no exact date has been confirmed.
Para One Readies New LP for Marble
Back in 2012, French producer Para One released Passion, an ambitious LP which we hailed as a rewarding collection of gallant dance music hybrids. Now, the former Institubes mainstay plans to return to the Marble label (which he co-runs alongside Surkin and Bobmo) with the Club LP, a new collection of productions which are in fact reinterpretations of Passion’s efforts. “The Passion album is the background for Club,” Para One explains in a press release. “I decided to reshape it for my live act, and rebuilt the tracks entirely, making live versions for festivals and bigger clubs, then I found myself with a totally different album,” he further tells. Spanning 11 tracks, the forthcoming LP is said to be short on subtlety, as the tracks have been designed to “hit kind of hard.” As Para One puts it, “The tracks had to sound real in a club situation and people are now meant to dance to them!”
The Club LP is set to drop on June 16 in Europe via Marble/Because, with a release in the US set for July 15 via the Big Beat label. In the meantime, a streaming teaser for Para One’s upcoming album can be heard below, where the record’s full tracklist is also included.

Death From Above 1979 to release first album since 2004 debut, The Physical World
Some of the duo’s second album is described as “Springsteen meets Sonic Youth.”
Death From Above 1979 released dance-punk touchstone You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine in 2004 before disbanding two years later. Bassist Jesse Keeler went on to co-found electro-house duo MSTRKRFT, while singer-drummer Sebastian Grainger would try his hand at indie rock.
Since reuniting in 2011, the duo has teased new material, and they have finally announced plans for a second album. Titled The Physical World and due in September, the album was helmed by veteran producer and composer Dave Sardy.
“No matter what Jesse and I do, on whatever scale of success it’s sat on, there’s always some kind of reference to Death From Above,” Grainger tells NME. “It’s only frustrating because it’s so lazy. So we’re putting out a Death From Above record and if the press is like, ‘It’s not what we expected,’ or however they react to it, it’s like, ‘Well, you’ve been fucking asking for it.’”
“This record is a key for us. It will permit us to go play the shows we want to play and it gives us the freedom to do what we want,” he added.
