It's safe to say RÜFÜS DU SOL are back.
After a quiet three years on the new music front, the renowned trio have returned with yet another musical masterstroke. "Next To Me" adds a new chapter to their career-long straddling of the dualities.
Starting off with nothing but haunting piano keys, the tune demands attention from the start. "Next To Me" is an immersive experience, as RÜFÜS DU SOL have paired subtle shakers and spacey vocal chops for an intimate soundscape serenaded by its aching lyricism.
"There were a lot more yearning lyrics being put down when we were writing the track, but we felt it didn’t need any of the darkness that you hear on a lot of our other records," said Jon George of RÜFÜS DU SOL.
The soulful lyrics of the track captivate listeners with an expression of longing for a loved one. "We wanted this to be a simple love song," added the band's Tyrone Lindqvist, "which is rare of us to do, to create something purely sweet without juxtaposing that with the raw, dark emotions on the other side."

After mysteriously popping up on cryptic posters around the world, the band officially resurfaced last month with the release of their first original track since 2018. Hailed by many as their biggest release to date, the aptly titled song informed fans that the trio are very much "Alive."
The highly anticipated release was then followed up with two stunning remixes: one courtesy of Anyma—the new electronic music alias from Matteo Milleri of Tale Of Us—and another from Croatian house music legend Solomun.
At the end of 2020 RÜFÜS DU SOL confirmed the recording of their fourth album was well underway, and expected to be out sometime in 2021. However, no further indication of a date has been disclosed at this time.
