The electronic music trio also provided an update on their next album.
The road to RÜFÜS DU SOL’s third album has been one of tantalizing ambivalence, obscured by cryptic teases and mysterious antics. And after their latest interview, we’re sadly no closer.
But at least we get to watch them perform. Making their debut on The Late Late Show, the trio chatted with host James Corden following a massive show at Colorado’s fabled Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Before the program aired RÜFÜS DU SOL’s performance of “Alive,” band member Tyrone Lindqvist provided an update on the album.
“Well we need to finish it first,” Lindqvist said with a laugh, adding, “We’re really excited about the songs that we’ve made and the album that’s coming out.”
Check out the clip below. The group’s haunting Red Rocks performance offers a glimpse into their new, immersive stage production and lighting design which, according to a press release, were developed to mirror the ambiance of the forthcoming album.
The group dropped the spellbinding “Alive” in July before an ensuing remix bundle in August. The track marked their first original music since the release of 2018’s Solace, which received a Grammy nod in the category of Best Dance/Electronic Album. In late December 2020 RÜFÜS DU SOL confirmed their third album was set to release this year, but mum’s been the word on a release date.
