The band posted a cheeky photo to Facebook earlier, and triple j points out that in the top right corner of the picture are Wilder Zoby and Lil’ Shalimar, two regular collaborators and producers for RTJ.
“We did a new thing and called in a couple special friends to help us do it,” the band said. “Cannot wait to show you all where we’re headed.”
This is definitely a bolt from the blue given what The Rubens’ music normally sounds like, so we’ll be on our toes to hear about it as soon as this “new thing” is released.
The Rubens last album was their sophomore record Hoops, released in 2015.
The Rubens told fans to follow this link to join their mailing list, where they’ll be sending “an exclusive sneak peak” shortly.
