Said Managing Director, Kobalt Music Group APAC, Simon Moor, "Being able to extend our relationship with RÜFÜS DU SOL, whom we currently publish, to include neighbouring rights is an exciting opportunity. RÜFÜS DU SOL continue to prove they are an artist of exceptional talent whether that be through significant bodies of work such as their sublime album 'SOLACE' or through the power of their singles like "You Were Right", "Innerbloom" and "Treat You Better". I am even more excited about the next steps for RÜFÜS DU SOL and look forward to working with them across 2021."
