Originally featured on 1991’s Nevermind, an acoustic version of Something In The Way was incorporated into the Seattle group’s seminal 1993 recording Unplugged In New York.
The release of Something In The Way follows on from a recent double Grammy nomination for Rüfüs Du Sol for Best Dance/Electronic Recording – for On My Knees – and Best Dance/Electronic Music Album – for Surrender.
The group are now embarking on a global tour, which kicks off on Friday April 21 at Diamante De Baseball in Medellín, Colombia, and on Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 23 at Centro De Eventos Autopiste Norte in Bogota, Colombia.
