“The Window” By Ruthven

UK multi-artist Ruthven releases, “The Window”. the track is now available via Paul Institute/XL Recordings, the new single comes alongside the announcement that Ruthven will support Sampha across on the European leg of the Satellite Business Tour, marking his debut in Berlin and Amsterdam.

Ruthven first broke out in 2017 as one of Paul Institute’s founding artists after his unique future-funk-infused R&B reached brothers Jai Paul and A. K. Paul, who founded the label. By taking the DNA of timeless hits from the past and filtering them through a modern lens his music is neither retro by design nor disposable efforts to keep up with the times. Following the release of singles“123 Days”, “Don’t Keep It To Yourself”, “Have You Decided?” and “Hypothalamus/Evil”. Across the last year, Ruthven has performed alongside Sampha, Rosetta, Blake Cascoe, and Elsas on the Satellite Business Tour, including a performance on Later…With Jools Holland.

Speaking on the single and forthcoming tour, Ruthven says:

“The Window explores an inner monologue with a range of feelings when in love, loss, separation and the confusion that those feelings bring to the surface. The heavyweights and classic tunes from artists like Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Al Green have always struck me melodically but I’ve been more drawn to the harmonies in their music for quite a while now. So as per, I was keen to attempt to emulate and modernise that in a way with this song too. It’s a special song to perform live and I’m stoked to be able to do that very soon.”
