RUFUS Solace packshotRÜFÜS DU SOL are keeping it short and sweet with their third studio album, returning from 2016’s Bloom with just nine new tracks.

Opener Treat You Better will remind you why you fell in love with RÜFÜS in the first place, with their synthy dance-pop reverberating all around the track’s rhythms and welcoming you home with a warm embrace. Eyes leans far more heavily into dance vibes, and title track Solace slows things down, reminiscent of classics like Sundream and Like An Animal.

Six-minute closer Another Life might as well just soundtrack all your near-future daylight savings Sunday sessions. Solace is just enough to get you through to summer.

Solace is out October 19 via Sony.
