Hear electro-dance trio Rufus Du Sol’s “Say A Prayer For Me”

Odesza’s Foreign Family Collective label is set to release its sixth work — and its first full-length album — from Rufus Du Sol, a trio from Australia. It will be Rufus Du Sol’s second album. Bloom will be out Jan. 22.

Listen to their hopeful, modern electro-dance song “Say A Prayer For Me.” Rufus Du Sol, comprising keyboardist Jon George, guitarist and vocalist Tyrone Lindqvist and drummer James Hunt recently won an Aria for Best Dance Release in their native country and are making the next step in their career here in the States.

Odesza hooked up with Rufus Du Sol in 2014, supporting them on their Australian tour. Odesza’s Harrison Mills explains the synergy:

“When an opportunity arose to work with Rufus Du Sol on releasing a track through a our label Foreign Family Collective, we sprung at the idea. They sent us the album to check out and we were blown away. Up until this point, FFC had only released singles. After hearing Bloom in its entirety, we knew we had to break that mold and put out the complete album. It’s one of the best albums we’ve come across in the last decade.”

 

BLOOM TRACKLIST:
1. Brighter
2. Like An Animal
3. Say A Prayer For Me
4. You Were Right
5. Be With You
6. Daylight
7. Hypnotised
8. Tell Me
9. Until The Sun Needs To Rise

Hear the Odesza/Little Dragon collaboration “Light”

Odesza today released a new single, “Light,” on which Swedish electronic band Little Dragon is featured. “Light” is part of a deluxe edition of “In Return,” coming Sept. 18 on Counter Records.

There’s a backstory to how Little Dragon and Odesza joined forces on “Light.” Little Dragon had sought out Odesza for a remix a song from their album “Nabuma Rubberband.” According to a press release, Little Dragon’s label sent Odesza the stems for a different song, which was not on the album. The idea sat for months, until Odesza and Little Dragon co-headlined a show in Boston. They got together then to build a new Odesza song around the Little Dragon vocal stem.

Listen to “Light” below. The two bands sound perfect together, like they should have collaborated a long time ago. Yukimi Nagano’s sensual R&B vocals intertwine and flows with Odesza’s trademark swaying melodies.

The deluxe edition of “In Return” will have live versions of “Bloom,” IPlayYouListen,” and “Say My Name” (which features Zyra), plus instrumental versions of each song on “In Return.”  A limited 10-inch vinyl will be out Nov. 1.

The second phase of the group’s just-announced tour includes dates in Australia, Germany and across the U.S.
