Ruel released his latest record, ‘Bright Lights, Red Eyes’, in October last year. Since then, he has released the single ‘Too Many Feelings’ and teamed up with Billy Davis and Genesis Owusu for ‘Dream No More’.
James released his second studio LP, ‘P.M.’, earlier this year, marking his first full-length record in five years.
