Ruel Releases “Younger” From Forthcoming EP “Ready” Out June 15

Following the debut of his official video for “Dazed & Confused,” which had PAPER Magazine praising it for its “million-dollar chorus” and “slow-burning beat sure to lodge itself in your prefrontal cortex,” and TIME Magazine drawing comparisons “in the vein of Purpose-era Justin Bieber’s most mature and earworm-ready hits,” adding “Dazed and Confused” stands apart by drawing on blues and R&B for added depth,” Ruel has followed up today with another soul-pop-gem titled “Younger” – out today.

Taken from his forthcoming debut “Ready” EP, which drops on June 15 via RCA Records, the new track “Younger” is comprised of an all-star cast of Ruel’s friends, including Grammy Award-winning producers M-Phazes and S1 (Beyonce, Kanye West & Jay-Z), background vocals by Sarah Aarons (Zedd & Alessia Cara, Dua Lipa) and Jason McGee & The Choir. It is unique collaborations like this that further solidify the 15-year-old multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Ruel as one of the most exciting emerging artists in 2018. Speaking of his latest release, Ruel explains “I wrote ‘Younger’ at my Airbnb in LA with my mate Sarah Aarons. We were talking about how friends part ways over time because of different interests or family life and I really liked that concept for a song. I definitely relate to this story personally and I feel like most people have gone through this kind of scenario too.”

Younger” premiered as a WORLD RECORD this morning on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show, where the esteemed tastemaker and host hailed the London born, Australian based artist as“one of our favorite new artists at Apple Music.” Assuring listeners “this is just getting started.”

Compared to the likes of Frank Ocean and James Blake by NYLON Magazine, 15-year-old London born, Australian raised artist was introduced to soul, blues, and jazz by his music-loving father, and counts Stevie WonderDave Brubeck and Amy Winehouse as major musical influences growing up.

After picking up and learning to play the guitar at 8 years old, Ruel started to write songs of his own, drawing inspiration from the aforementioned groundbreaking acts. Drawing from his own experiences as a teenage boy, Ruel explains “all my songs are about personal experiences. Songwriting helps me get through things, feelings that I don’t understand myself. When I write about something, it helps me figure it out in the process. But I want people of all ages, whether they’re 15 or 50, to be able to relate to my songs.”

“Younger” is out now worldwide.
