Listen to Kaiser Chiefs’ ‘Ruby’ from Heart of Invictus, Ep 4 as the band plays live at Invictus Games

The new Netflix documentary Heart of Invictus might be being generally slammed by the public (people are tired of Prince Harry and his constant whining about being “a victim”), but it does feature some inspiring stories of service men and women who were injured while doing their military duty, as well as excellent music on its soundtrack.

Songs like Kaiser Chief’s ‘Ruby‘, which was played live by the British indie rock band during the 2022 Invictus Games ceremony.

It plays as the UK team dance to the song, and as we see shots of various team members from around the world.

When was Kaiser Chief’s ‘Ruby‘ released?

The track was first released by the British band in February, 2007 as the lead single from their second studio album Yours Truly, Angry Mob, which came out via the Polydor and B-Unique record labels.
