"We've started writing the next album. There are tons of songs that didn't make the first album," Amir Amor told the Daily Star.

"I think breaking the US would be a dream of ours," added Piers Agget.

"I really like Rihanna – I think her songs are brilliant and we're all fans of Lauryn Hill. I think that'd be the ultimate American collaboration. The Score and The Fugees were a big part of our growing up."

Amor continued: "We'd love to do a track with Pharrell, although he brushed right passed me at a show and I didn't even recognise him. Daft Punk are a big influence on us actually."

Rudimental recently topped the UK album chart with their debut record Home, which features hits 'Waiting All Night', 'Feel The Love' and 'Not Giving In'.
