Global, platinum-selling collective, Rudimental, have today unveiled the stunning acoustic video to their new single "Sun Comes Up" feat. James Arthur. Shot in the ground of Casita Verde in Ibiza with the backdrop of a beautiful sunset, the video is married with striking acoustic production and gorgeous additional vocals.
Taken from the bands forthcoming third album, which is currently in the works, the release marks the first musical output from the multi-award winning group in 18 months.
The track will be released via Major Toms/Atlantic Records [Major Toms being the bands own subsidiary label to which they signed and developed platinum-selling artist, Anne-Marie to in 2014.] "Sun Comes Up" is a touching glimpse into how they've grown, both as individuals and as a band, and the various struggles they have been through to overcome adversity to get where they are today.
To date, the genre-defying, BRIT-Award winning band have sold over 2.6 million singles in the UK! They released their double-platinum selling debut album "Home" to critical acclaim in 2013, which has since sold over 1 million units worldwide, earning them at Mercury Prize nomination. Subsequently, they released their second UK #1, studio album "WE THE GENERATION" in the autumn of 2015 and featured their global smash "Lay It All On Me" which featured Ed Sheeran and sold over 1.7 million copies, globally, including Gold single status in the US. The album married an array of genres including soul, funk, hip hop, drum and bass and even featured the last vocal recordings from the late Bobby Womack on the track "New Day". In 2015, the band hosted their very own, all-new UK festival, Wild Life, which won 'Best New Festival' at the UK Festival Awards last year and also completed its 3 year running earlier this month.
In addition to the above, Rudimental concluded their last global tour with sold out shows at both Alexandra Palace and & the o2 Arena in London - the equivalent of 25,000 ticket sales! Subsequently, the boys have embarked on a weekly Ibiza residency every Tuesday at Amnesia this summer.
Released via Major Toms/Atlantic Records, "Sun Comes Up" is available now on all digital platforms.

Eager, tenacious and remarkably talented. Nick Martin won’t stop until he’s right there at the top. With his new single on The Bearded Man, ‘I’m Ready’, the Greek tastemaker shows he’s ripe for the next step in his career and poised to conquer the world of dance music.
Listen to Nick Martin – ‘I’m Ready’
Drenched in sexy synth soars and touching vocals, ‘I’m Ready’ shows how far Nick Martin has come since releasing his first original record in 2013. Well-balanced between emotional passages and more powerful partitions, the song shows amazing crossover potential while staying true to the sound Nick Martin calls his own. Without a doubt, this is one for the airwaves.
After spending the early days of his career making waves in his local House/Tech House scene, Nick Martin started to take the electronic music world by storm in 2014. That year saw him land his first international DJ gig at Marquee Las Vegas, after which he pushed himself harder and harder in the following years. Now, in 2017, his track record culminates to several highly-acclaimed productions with support from the likes of Benny Benassi, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Galantis, club shows alongside superstars such as Alesso, Axwell ^ Ingrosso, Avicii, David Guetta and Hardwell, a European winter tour alongside Grammy-nominated top act The Chainsmokers, and forthcoming performances at Ushuaïa Ibiza and Ultra Japan. Suffice to say, Nick Martin is making every moment count. He is ready.

As with all good stories, as one chapter closes, another opens. Such is the way in the already singles-rich chronicle of ‘Materia’ – Cosmic Gate’s episodic seventh album project. Following the considerable success of January’s “impressive” “roots return” (DJ Mag) “made for the clubs” (MIXMAG) maiden Chapter, today sees ‘Materia’ enter its second, entrancing phase.

After the ‘WYM’-born club smash ‘Sometimes They Come For More’, you’re also in line for ‘No Strings Attached’ – their return match with Arnej. Song-based collaborations naturally abound too, with new music backed by many a respected voice. Through ‘If Not Now’ and ‘Materia’s title track, JES makes two appearances. After their Chapter.One turns, Eric Lumiere and Alastor both return and following 2014’s ‘Sparks After The Sunset’, Sarah Lynn is back too, with ‘Folded Wings’.
Singles-wise, the album signs in this very day with the ether-soaked haunt of ‘Tonight’ (available here). After ‘Wake Your Mind’s ‘Be Your Sound’ and ‘Start To Feel’s ‘Going Home’, those wondering whether ‘Materia’s odyssey would come to feature Emma Hewitt’s touch need wonder no more! Given its debut by Armin on ASOT821, the mood-infused beguiler comes packed with emotional reach throughout its verses, brilliantly balanced by elevation in its chorus. For those pre-ordering ‘Chapter.Two’ (which you’re able to do this very moment hereabouts, ‘Tonight’ will pop as part of the three pre-release instant-grat tracks, carrying you through to its September 1st release.

Bandmates and friends of Linkin Park front man Chester Bennington arrive at his LA home after singer's shock 'suicide' which coincided with good friend Chris Cornell's birthday
Friends and family of Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington are in absolute 'shock' over the rock star's apparent suicide as it's revealed they believed he 'was in a good place in his life'.
The 41-year-old was found dead in his home in Palos Verdes near Los Angeles shortly before 9am on Thursday.
A Los Angeles County coroner confirmed they were investigating Bennington's death as an apparent suicide but no additional details were available.
Law enforcement officials say Bennington hanged himself in his bedroom and he was home alone at the time, according to TMZ. He was found upstairs by his housekeeper.
Band-mate Joe Hahn arrived at his home on Thursday afternoon. Other friends and relatives flipped the finger to photographers gathered outside.
After news of his shock death emerged, friends said that while they never suspected he'd kill himself, Bennington was 'never the same' after the death of his close friend Chris Cornell.
His apparent suicide coincided with Cornell's birthday. The Soundgarden rocker killed himself in May by hanging.
'Chester and Chris were so close, and he was never the same after Chris’s death,' the friend told Radar.
The friend of Bennington's also noted that Cornell's death deeply affected Bennington, who also struggled with 'addiction issues'.
Chester Bennington, 41, (pictured in February) killed himself in his home in Palos Verdes near Los Angeles shortly before 9am on Thursday
'But everyone thought that he had it licked. He seemed to be at a good place in his life. It is just so tragic and there are no words,' the friend told Radar.
His bandmates were said to be blindsided by Chester's suicide with sources telling TMZ they had plans to attend a photo shoot in Hollywood later on Thursday.
One Linkin Park band member went to pick him up on Thursday morning but arrived to find police already at his home.
The singer had a history of drug and alcohol abuse. He was married and is survived by his six children from two relationships.
Chester had flown back to Los Angeles on Wednesday night. He had been spending time in Arizona with his wife Talinda, but she remained behind.
Chester, as well as Linkin Park guitarist Brad Delson, had performed Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' for the crowd of mourners at Cornell's funeral, many of whom were moved to tears.

A little over a month after the release of collaborative album ‘Togetherr’, Ruben de Ronde and Rodg have delivered another one of its striking singles. ‘BombSquadKittens’, which was made in collaboration with Trance star Ben Gold, was picked as the official anthem of Electronic Family 2017 and saw its official release today on Statement! Recordings, the imprint of Ruben de Ronde.
Listen to Ruben de Ronde x Rodg x Ben Gold - BombSquadKittens
Sure to turn heads at Electronic Family 2017 on August 5th and August 6th, ‘BombSquadKittens’ oozes insane dance floor potential. Laced with powerful drums, soaring synths and sweeping melodies, this cut from Trance’s three-member elite squadron is one that no fan can ever get enough of.
For Ruben de Ronde and Ben Gold, it’s not the first time that one of their tracks has been selected as the official anthem for Electronic Family. Two years ago, they joined forces to come up with ‘Era Festivus’, which went on to become the official anthem for Electronic Family 2015. If the crowd’s response to that track is anything to go by now, ‘BombSquadKittens’ is sure to be among this year’s absolute highlights.
Although the festival only kicks-off tomorrow, already a lot of people felt the magic of Tomorrowland today. At Brussels Airport flights full with festivalgoers from all over the world arrived, as well as AMARE, the Tomorrowland plane. Hundreds of busses en trains with destination 'Boom' shuttled the festivalgoers to their hotel or Dreamville (the name of the campsite at Tomorrowland). 38.000 campers just discovered . While the sun is going down, all 38.000 campers are enjoying themselves during The Gathering, the pre-party at Dreamville: a small taste of what is coming tomorrow.
Before getting on the plane with destination Tomorrowland, festival goers were treated to a pre-party at the gate at 24 departure airports. 47 flights took the party up in the air with music on board, of which 8 flights even host a live DJ-set at 30.000 feet.
The 38.000 campers just raised their own tent or discovered their Easy Tents, DreamLodges or Cabanas. They took a refreshing shower or did some shopping at the bakery or the supermarket, all situated in the central Marketplace. The festivalgoers got already a preview for the next days with a big pre-party: called The Gathering. Behind the dj-booth: Belgian proud Yves V, Romeo Blanco and Sem Thomasson. Campers got surprised by a surprise act of Afrojack.
Today Brussels became even more multicultural than usual. Festival goers were immersed in the magic of Tomorrowland at the Grote Markt. For this occasion, the square was only accessible to people with a Tomorrowland bracelet. While a dj played music, there were all kind of activities around the "Grande Place". In the evening the party continued at Tours & Taxis. What a way to kick things off...!
David Guetta has spoken out about a lack of inventiveness that was rife in the EDM scene over the last two years, and that the music is now ushering in a new era.
In a new interview with The Independent, where he was speaking about the scene in Ibiza, Guetta said, "There’s a way bigger awareness of that side of music on the island than there was a few years ago.
"I’m going to be honest, in the two last years that same 128bpm EDM was starting to make me tired. Everybody was playing it.
“So now I’m happy, I think it’s amazing moment for music because it’s the end of a cycle, but that also means the beginning of another one. And I think we can all be experimental, people want new sounds and they’re ready for new ones.
“This is what dance music is meant to be, and I love it. I can remember when I started to make house music, it’s because I didn’t like that pop music was so formatted. When EDM became more formulaic than pop I thought ‘This is crazy!’."
Guetta also opened up about how he received criticism when he started to change his sound, making tracks like his Justin Bieber collaboration, ‘2u’."At the beginning of house music, it was all about being credible," he said. "When I started to make music and cross over I started to receive some criticism. So I said, ‘look, I’m not trying to be credible, I’m trying to be in-credible'.
“I think anybody that is going to do something a bit out of the box is always going to be criticised, but at the end of the day that’s the only thing that matters."
You can be a good little boy who follows the rules, but you’re never going to do anything interesting with your life. I make the music that I believe in, the music that I love, that I wanna share with people. And I’m not forcing anyone to listen to it."
Last week (14th July), Justice's Xavier De Rosnay suggested that David Guetta also releases "really, really good music" under secret aliases.

This year 30.000 people from around the world will take part in Global Journey, the largest ever travel undertaking by a festival worldwide. Next to the Brussels Airlines flights, we also have guests who travel by train and bus. 38.000 guests are staying at DreamVille or others are sleeping in one of our 27 Tomorrowland hotels in Brussels.
Festivalgoers can also extend the unique global connection of Tomorrowland with an amazing travel package that takes them across Europe : Discover Europe. The People of Tomorrow get the chance to visit next to Tomorrowland also Brussels, Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin, Barcelona, Ibiza and Budapest.
For the sixth year in a row, Brussels Airlines flies thousands of festival goers from around the globe to Tomorrowland. This year, Brussels Airlines brings more than 10.000 festival goers to Belgium to celebrate at Tomorrowland in Boom. All these music lovers come to Belgium on 236 different flights from 79 cities all over the world. The most popular departure cities are Geneva, Madrid and Barcelona. About 500 Tomorrowland goers chose a Discover Europe Package, in which they can combine the festival with a visit to several European cities.
Before getting on the plane, festival goers will be treated to a pre-party at the gate at 24 departure airports.. 47 flights take the party up in the air with music on board, of which 8 flights even host a live DJ-set at 30.000 feet. This year, Brussels Airlines and Tomorrowland proudly organize party flights with Amare, the fourth Airbus A320 in the airline's Belgian Icon series, dedicated to Tomorrowland. Amare was chosen as the fourth special livery plane because Tomorrowland really has become one of Belgium's icons, the festival being infamous around the globe. Guests on board of Amare will be in the Tomorrowland mood right from their departure, with its special mood lighting and music installation on board. On some of the flights, we will be bringing along the Flemish Kitchen Rebels (VisitFlanders), chefs who will introduce festival guests to Belgium's fine cuisine.
The party flights can be followed online here.
Tonight, DJ Yves V will play a live DJ set on board when Amare flies 180 Discover Europe party goers from Ibiza to Brussels Airport. Michelin star chefRoger Van Damme serves a special Tomorrowland dessert for everyone on board.
New this year is that we will test a baggage drop off point at the Dreamville, so Tomorrowland goers don't have to carry their bags and tents to the airport themselves and can have a relaxed trip home or can enjoy a nice day of sightseeing before heading to the airport.
At the festival site, Brussels Airlines brings everyone with their heads in the clouds, with The Loop, a ferris wheel that offers the best view over the magnificent landscape of Tomorrowland and far beyond. A ride on The Loop is, like every year, free for every Tomorrowland visitor.

After quitting DJ'ing last year after a number of health scares, Avicii has teased his comeback via a recent post to his Instagram account.
Posted to his Instagram account, the Swedish chart-topper posted a picture of the ruins of Machu Pichu in Peru, with the caption, "new music coming soon".
The Swedish DJ and producer was forced to quit DJ'ing live last year, after years of being on the road began to take its toll on him, both physically and mentally.
Earlier in the year, Avicii posted to Instagram some footage of recent studio sessions with songwriters and engineers, leading many to speculate he was working on his third studio album.
