Ruel has released his new single, ‘As Long As You Care’, with an accompanying music video after teasing it throughout the week.
He has also announced details surrounding his forthcoming EP, ‘Bright Lights, Red Eyes’, which is due out Friday, October 23.
The video for ‘As Long As You Care’ features Ruel meandering around a 70’s inspired house, while also playing various 70’s television stereotypes on screens around the home, complimenting the smooth and groovy burn of the song itself.
Watch the video below.
In addition to the song’s release and the EP announcement, he has also teased RuelVision.TV, which he refers to as “an alternate universe built just for you”. A website for RuelVision.TV is live, and is set to officially launch at 7am AEST on Tuesday, September 15.
Furthermore, he’s announced the RuelVision.TV phone line, which he touts as a guide to “all things RuelVision.TV”. A list of international numbers to access the phone line can be found here.
The string of teasers started earlier this week, with a retro-style video in which Ruel seemed to be advertising a drink called “Red Eyes Soda”.
He followed it up with another faux-advertisement for the product, this time sporting a red velvet suit, round pink glasses and a British accent.
A third clip saw the singer don a pilot’s uniform to spruik “Red Eye Airways”, where he delivered the line, “See you in the bright lights of the red eye skies”.
‘As Long As You Care’ will be the singer’s first new solo music since the release of his 2019 album ‘Free Time’.
He hasn’t been completely dormant this year though, having linked up with Cosmo’s Midnight for ‘Down For You’ and UK singer GRACEY on her single, ‘Empty Love’. Ruel also released a ‘Painkiller’ remix pack, featuring a version of the song that he recorded with Denzel Curry.
