Rudimental have premiered a new track with Dizzee Rascal.
The drum and bass quartet have collaborated with the grime legend as well as rising star Anne-Marie on their latest song 'Love Ain't Just A Word', with the group saying they're "so glad" they finally got to work with the rapper having been fans of his music for such a long time.
Speaking about the track, they said: "We grew up with Dizzee; we all used to hang out as kids together in East London. We were working on a track and thought he'd be perfect on it, so invited him over to our studio, Major Toms. He came over one night, liked what he heard, so wrote and recorded his verse there and then! So glad that we finally got to work together."
'Love Ain't Just A Word' has been taken from the 'Waiting All Night' hitmakers' upcoming second album 'We The Generation' - set to be released on September 18 - with the song available as an instant download when pre-ordering the LP online.
The latest track comes after the group - featuring Piers Agget, Amir Amor, Kesi Dryden and DJ Locksmith - revealed playing live shows has had a much greater influence on their new album compared to their 2013 debut, 'Home'.
Speaking about the making of the record, Kesi said: "When we made 'Home' we had our first single and started touring right from the start before we even finished the album. Now we're a little more prepared. 'We The Generation' comes out in September and we're able to test our music on the crowd while having a finished record to look forward to. We're always willing to tweak different tracks depending on how we feel the crowd reacts."
