The Rubens return with new single ‘Million Man’, a soulful, groove-fuelled track, that follows on where their now certified platinum, #1 triple j’s hottest 100 single ‘Hoops’ left off.
The story of ‘Million Man’ begins at 2013’s Laneway Music Festival, where The Rubens befriended NYC rapper EL-P (Run The Jewels) and his band, which included his Run The Jewels producers/collaborators, brothers Wilder Zoby and Little Shalimar (aka Torbitt Schwartz).
After a few nights spent drinking in New York at a bar that Torbitt and Wilder co-owned, it seemed their effortless friendship could lead to a pretty interesting musical collaboration.
2017 and the possibility became reality when both producers flew out from the bustling streets of New York City to the band’s newly created recording studio, housed in a World War II communications bunker in the outskirts of Camden in Sydney’s deep South West.
On the collaboration, keyboard/vocalist/songwriter Elliott Margin says:
“When it came time to look for a producer for this new record, we realised that they'd be the perfect guys to work with. ‘Million Man’ was the first track we worked on in the studio with the boys. It was genuinely just a fun time building the song and being creative together.”
‘Million Man’ marks the first single off the band’s highly anticipated third album, due for release in 2018.
