‘SURRENDER’ to RÜFÜS DU SOL’s fourth studio album

Six weeks spent in Joshua Tree and a DIY ground-floor studio. These were the sites where RÜFÜS DU SOL would fashion much of SURRENDER.

As those well-versed in RÜFÜS know, geography has always been a critical aspect of the alternative dance trio’s album crafting legacy. Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George, and James Hunt penned their debut album on the coast of Australia, BLOOM in Berlin, and SOLACE in Los Angeles, after all, and in each case, location influenced the sound and feel of the resulting records. This precedent remains intact as RÜFÜS DU SOL take their fourth lap around the LP circuit with SURRENDER, a project fashioned entirely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Apart from their families, the Aussie outfit say they grew closer than ever as SURRENDER took shape amid group workouts and meditation and intention setting sessions.

Their emphasis on world-building sprawls across 11 tracklistings, three of which—“Alive,” “Next to Me,” and “On My Knees“—emerged during SURRENDER‘s rollout. The album, available to stream below, is accompanied by a North American tour slated to expand their world-building enterprise beyond the audible. RÜFÜS DU SOL are currently working alongside designer Stefano Giacomello to build digital spaces for their fans to explore. The creative initiative, which will act as an extension of their music, can be previewed in its earliest form on their official website.

SURRENDER, which ranked among Dancing Astronaut’s most-anticipated albums of 2021, is out now via Rose Ave Records. Stream the LP and see a complete list of RÜFÜS DU SOL tour dates below.
