  • R Plus - The Last Summer



    >//𝙱𝙴𝙶𝙸𝙽_𝚃𝚁𝙰𝙽𝚂𝙼𝙸𝚂𝚂𝙸𝙾𝙽:
    The Last Summer is the debut album from R Plus, released 11th October via BMG.

    Pre-order now at https://RPlus.lnk.to/LastSummerFA.

    The Last Summer is a musical memory for anyone looking back at a life-changing summer of heat, haze, friendship, love, madness, and euphoria. It's the first in a new series from Rollo featuring Dido along with Sister Bliss (Faithless), and will feature singles THOSE WERE THE DAYS, SUMMER DRESS, and MY BOY - which are all available to stream and download now.

    Pine forests, clouds like islands, Spanish boys on mopeds, vodka shots & charcoal fires... pickpockets and Burger King, empty beaches, skinny dipping, short dresses... every day like the rest but no day like the last.

    Released songs:





    When we lose what we love
    Don't think anything will ever taste the same
    When we lose what we love
    Don't think anything will ever feel as good again

    Strange they didn't provide the link to physical version.... looking forward to hear it in full. 2 songs I've heard from this project sound really great

      Sister Bliss on it, too!

      An actual proper press release! So it's effectively Rollo featuring Dido for album one. Then who knows who's on album two? Sister Bliss guesting.



      Rough Trade link for physical editions is still up - complete with anonymous no-identities revealed write-up.

        Sister Bliss is included on this one and she was the first to play snippets on her sets + Dido is literally saying my brother, me and Sister Bliss have made an album.

          When I click the pre-order link it only give me Spotify and Google Play links
          I have received many gifts from God,
          but this is the first time I have ever received a gift from a goddess

                Oh, that's quite disappointing, so only one new track...

                  Kind of. On a bright side the ones we heard are revamped.

                    I was trying to make sense of the press release, not her statement. So - from the tracklist details - it IS basically a Rollo album then. That's cleared that up. Wrong info from Classic Pop magazine - they explicitly said R + / R Plus is Rollo and Dido (didn't even mention Sister Bliss).

                    EDIT: i should have just looked on iTunes! "R Plus and Dido" is the credit on some tracks (though not on the artwork of the singles).

                        BTW, this project reminded me how much I love thier dance collabs. Dido is singing backing vocals on this (she's singing the title line actually) and it's her first recorded track

                              I -love- 'My Boy'. It feels like the production on Dido's voice is very No Angel-esque. I love it; it's both nostalgic, backward looking and fresh and forward embracing. <3
                              Try to think of a world, where you could stay and these safe hands could go.
                              Take your heart above the water, where-ever I choose to go.

                                  I really really love this album, it's much better than Dido's solo album.

                                    sadly, no sign of this inside top 100 album this week in UK. Shame, because I really wanted this project to have some legs.

                                    I just adore My Boy, this is what Dido should release over and over again!

                                              very surprising they did an album where they werenít involved in the writing at all. I find it hard to believe that Dido only contributed vocals to the album.

                                                According to discogs the credits on the LP edition read as following:

                                                Artwork – David Kitson
                                                Composed By – Frank Bascombe, Shannon Pierce, Shimai Shifuku
                                                Engineer [Recording Engineer] – David P*
                                                Mastered By – Eric*
                                                Music By [All], Keyboards, Synth, Bass – SB*
                                                Producer, Mixed By, Programmed By – R*
                                                Speech [Spoken Word] – DG*
                                                Vocals [All] – D*

                                                So it does indeed seem Rollo only produced and Dido did the vocals.
                                                I have received many gifts from God,
                                                but this is the first time I have ever received a gift from a goddess

                                                  On his last project that involved her (Dusted - Safe from Harm) out of 3 songs she's featured on, she's credited as a songwriter only on one, but he's credited on all of them. It's a strange situation indeed. Those writers only have R Plus under their names, so he either wanted to support young talents or they used pseudonyms
