Rudimental teams up with Rita Ora on drum ‘n’ bass/pop, ‘Summer Love,’ off the band’s forthcoming album
Lush synths lay a bed for Ora’s sultry vocals to gleam and grow. Rapid drum ‘n’ bass percussion is teased in the first verse, making full descent in time for the hook, which combines elements of pop and breakbeat. The second verse maintains the complex drum arrangement alongside Ora’s full-bodied pipes.
“Summer Love” joins “These Days” featuring Jess Glynne, Macklemore, and Dan Caplen, “Let Me Live” featuring Anne Marie and Mr. Eazi; and “Walk Alone” featuring Tom Walker on Rudimental’s Toast To Our Differences long play set to drop Jan 25. Ora herself recently released her second studio album, Phoenix, following her 2012, self-titled debut album.
