Rudimental has worked with an unbelievable slew of talented singers and songwriters over the past seven years, entirely redefining what it means to be a collaborative act in the dance music world in the interim. Most notably, their discography lists the enviable work of Ed Sheeran, Foxes, Emeli Sandé, Becky Hill, Anne-Marie, MNEK, Ella Eyre, Foy Vance, John Newman and Sinéad Harnett.
After their latest chart-topping single, “Sun Comes Up,” which saw them reuniting with frequent collaborator John Newman, the popular Drum n’ Bass group’s latest single “These Days” sees them bringing together some big names: Jess Glynne, Macklemore and Daniel Caplen.
Rudimental successfully blend soulful, church-like piano melodies with with tropical-house undertones to amount to the perfect uplifting anthem, whose mission is to ultimately bring people together. “I hope someday/ We’ll sit down together/ And laugh with each other/ About these days, these days,” Jess and Dan chant on the soaring hook. “All our troubles/ We’ll lay to rest/ And we’ll wish we could come back to these days/ These days/ These days, these days.”
It’s just one of those songs that immediately feels like a breath of fresh positive air. The world could use more of this – LOVE!
