Rick Rubin quickly recognized the Ruen Brothers' talent. “I liked that their songwriting seemed like it was from another era.” explains Rubin. Henry adds, “The album was recorded using all real instruments & a live band, resulting in a different sound than what’s present in much of today’s popular music.” Says Rupert, “We’re very lucky that we’ve been able to do whatever we’ve wanted musically & had it all recorded to the best quality with the best musicians & collaborators. In today’s industry, you don’t usually get that freedom. Hopefully people will appreciate & enjoy it as much as we do.”
ALL MY SHADES OF BLUE, produced by Rubin & featuring Chad Smith (RHCP), Dave Keuning (The Killers), & Ian McLagan (Faces/Small Faces), will be released on 6/1.
