The Rubens have just premiered their latest single 'Never Ever ft. Sarah' on Triple J, and have announced the title and release date for their next Album!
The band's third album will be titled LO LA RU and will be released on Friday the 29th of June.
LO LA RU presents a fully realised sound that picks up on the RnB and hip-
hop influence that was hinted at on songs like ‘Hoops’ and ‘Bitter End’, bringing those
stylistic references to the fore, without losing any of the soulful warmth that typified
their earliest tracks like ‘Lay It Down’ and ‘My Gun’ and won them the adoration of
fans all over Australia and the world.
'Never Ever' featuring Grammy Award nominated Sarah Aarons was a late edition to the album. The band were stoked when they heard Sarah was in Sydney for the holidays and was interested in collaborating.
Elliott on working with Sarah: “The day we met Sarah in the studio, she told us that her Grade 10 teacher introduced her to our song ‘Lay It Down’ and that is what inspired her to do music in Year 11 & 12. We were pretty blown away with that; a good sentiment to start writing a song together. We actually thought with the album completed we would be writing a song for someone else. The main chord structure and melody was something I had been fiddling with for a while but couldn't find the words or story for. After meeting Sarah and having a chat we got stuck into the song, started throwing ideas around. Pretty quickly we realised it needed to be a duet and from there the story started to take shape."
Big things to come from the band this year! If you haven't already, check out their latest single here.
