Rudimental have shared the latest taste of their hugely anticipated new studio album, ‘Toast To Our Differences’, joining forces with Ray BLK and Stefflon Don on the smooth, bubbling groove of ‘Scared Of Love’.
Having already debuted three huge singles from the new album so far– smash hit UK #1 ‘These Days’ ft. Jess Glyne, Macklemore & Dan Caplen, the biggest-selling record of 2018 in the UK, ‘Let Me Live’ (prod. with Major Lazer) ft. Anne-Marie & Mr. Eazi and ‘Walk Alone’ ft. Tom Walker – ‘Scared Of Love’ sees Rudimental pair up with Ray BLK and Stefflon Don on a record for the first time.
Bursting with classic house flavours, ‘Scared Of Love’ lands as a peak-time, feel good jam, elevated by Ray BLK’s glistening vocal hooks and Stefflon Don’s sharp, rapid-fire verses, spotlighting just how bold, diverse and expansive the Rudimental sound has become.
As a primer to the release of ‘Toast To Our Differences’ on January 25th, Rudimental have also announced a series of nationwide album pre-release shows, with dates in Cardiff, Cambridge, Brighton and Kingston.
