Ruby Rushton have released two new songs, “Sun Khosi” and “Chrysalis,” that preview their upcoming album.
“Sun Khosi” is a warm, inviting ode to bandleader Tenderlonious’ father, who spent many years working as a Gurkha officer in Nepal. Its title is taken from one of the most famous rivers in the country, which runs through the Himalayas, and translates to “river of gold.”
B-side “Chrysalis” is a composition by Ruby Rushton keyboardist Aidan Shepherd, and was inspired by the playing of British jazz pianist John Taylor. Both songs will appear on the outfit’s new album, which is out in November. It will follow their 2019 album, Ironside.
Ruby Rushton aside, Tenderlonious is staying busy: Next week, the multi-instrumentalist will release The Piccolo – Tender Plays Tubby, a four-track homage to Tubby Hayes, and in June he will release the project Tender in Lahore.
