RÜFÜS DU SOL ‘Next To Me’ [Rose Avenue / Reprise Records / Warner Records]


Grammy-nominated live-electronic trio RÜFÜS DU SOL have released their latest single ‘Next To Me’, accompanied by an artificially intelligent official music video directed by Osk.


‘Next To Me’ portrays a sense of maturity and adoration on a level not felt before from the band. At its core it is a song of devotion, of caring compassion, an affair of the heart not undercut by the pressures of stardom or toils of young love. It's a point of departure from the haunting emotive roller coaster of recent single ‘Alive’, and a more positive lyrical take on the foundation set by the similarly anthemic ‘Treat You Better’ off the 2018 Grammy-nominated ‘SOLACE’ LP.


The journey of every RÜFÜS DU SOL record is one that explores life’s many dualities: dark with light, love with loss, hope with despair. ‘Next to Me’ takes us down a different course, unapologetically professing love in its truest & deepest form. The band’s unanimous favorite from the forthcoming album, ‘Next to Me’ firmly grounds its listener next to the one they love, the one they can’t live without.


As for what to expect next? “On the last record it was space and seeing how we could represent the cosmos and black holes and the galactic through synth sounds. This new record sounds crystalline, like gemstones sparkling, and very granular.” -RÜFÜS DU SOL

Release Date : August 11th, 2021
