Band & Musician News - Rob Ruha Announces New Album 'Preservation Of Scenery'

Rob Ruha Announces New Album 'Preservation Of Scenery'

24 September 2021 - 0 Comments

Today, multi award-winning songwriter, composer and Aotearoa music royalty Rob Ruha announces his forthcoming album Preservation of Scenery, out October 8th. Pre-order/save the album HERE.

A musical ombre of RnB and Soul, Preservation of Scenery sits in the current pocket of popular music, with something to say. Contagious ideas, as catchy as the melodies and hooks, this album aims to inspire and uplift Indigenous truth. Are you hearing what was intended? Infused with throwback undertones, sing-along tunes teeming with harmony, Rob Ruha’s Māori music signature is present in every corner of this record.

Speaking to the conception and development of the album, Rob explains “In one of the most uncertain and testing times in generations, Preservation of Scenery encourages us to search deeper beyond superficial veneers. As we enter into the autumn amber of our lives, what are the scenes that are worthy of preservation? What do we reflect upon as being truly worthwhile? Preservation of Scenery is my sonic and artistic answer to these questions”.

In a unique 'Inverted' strategy for release, Rob Ruha generously offers his listening audience the entire album from the outset and retrospectively reveals the deeper layers of his songs, videos and online performances, as the music matures with his fans.

Fans across the globe will be able to get a first taste of the new music with the release of Taka Rawa feat. Ka Hao on October 1st, ahead of the release of lead single Taera alongside the album on October 8th.

The age of indigenous-proclamation is upon us and Taera as the first release from Preservation of Scenery deliberately showcases Rob Ruha's mother tongue first and foremost, a tribute to his commitment to Te Reo Māori.

Rob says “Taera is fun and light, production is swag and it’s all in my native tongue: the nuanced, crack up and warm reo I hear in my neck of the woods. You could say it’s a special, mystique part of me and my people that I am whole-heartedly sharing with the world”.

Preservation Of Scenery is Rob’s latest release since the award winning Mohau and is his attempt at freeing the new sounds in his mind to the world. It is a result of an intentional creative pause, wānanga and collaborations with co-writers, producers and artists like Rory Noble, Kings, The Halluci Nation (Formerly A Tribe Called Red), Whenua Patuwai and Josh Tatofi, while returning to jam again with the likes of with The Black Quartet, Sir Derek Lardelli, Kuini Moehau, Troy Kingi, The Witch Dr. and many more.
