Emeli Sandé for Rudimental debut album

Rudimental have confirmed that they have recorded a collaboration with Emeli Sandé.

The Hackney collective - who released their new single 'Not Giving In' this week - revealed that the singer is likely to feature on their debut album, due out next year.

"We've been in the studio with Emeli Sandé recently and I'm sure she'll be on our album. She's really cool, a lovely person and a really great voice," band member Piers Agget told the Daily Star.

"And we've been recording with a really good US rapper called Angel Haze. She'll probably be on the album with a really cool track."

Rudimental also admitted that they have been approached to work with a number of big-name stars since the success of their single 'Feel The Love'.

However, they have confessed that they would rather work with soul vocalists, rather than pop acts.

"We really like Rihanna. I think her songs are brilliant, but we're all massive fans of Lauryn Hill. I think that would be the ultimate American collaboration," Agget explained.

"The Score and The Fugees were a big part of our growing up. Plus Alex Clare will be on there along with Ella McMahon who plays live with us."
