Australian singer-songwriter Ruel has released the music video for “I DON’T WANNA BE LIKE YOU,” his new single released under RCA Records/Sony Music Entertainment.
Directed by James Chappell, the visuals find the pop prodigy escaping an army of folks dressed in blue jumpsuits with his getaway vehicle.
“I DON’T WANNA BE LIKE YOU” is an upbeat alt-pop tune with a breezy chorus that’s worth singing along to, and an indelible groove fit for the summer. The song is part of his debut studio album, 4th WALL, which debuted at No. 3 in Australia and No. 10 in New Zealand upon its release.
Through a journey that spanned over the last three years, Ruel’s long-awaited debut album explores his most personal and stellar musical offerings to date. The 14-track offering features an array of writing collaborators and producers including M-Phazes (Khalid, Noah Cyrus), Sammy Witte (Harry Styles, Halsey), Gabe Simon (Dua Lipa, Maroon 5), Spencer Stewart (Alina Baraz, ROLE MODEL) and artists PJ Harding and Mikky Ekko.
Following his well-received show in Manila last month, the young hitmaker recently announced the North American and European/United Kingdom legs of his headlining “4TH WALL WORLD TOUR” in support of his debut album 4TH WALL. The hugely anticipated tour will see the Australian trailblazer light up stages across the globe in his first world tour in over three years.
On getting back on tour, Ruel says, “I cannot wait to get back to my fans and play some of my favourite cities in the world and experience brand new ones too. I’ve never looked forward to a tour this much and I’m counting down the days until I can play a bunch of new tracks from the album as well as all my fan favorites.”
