Ruel Teams Up With Cosmo’s Midnight For New Track ‘Down For You.’

After the whirlwind that was 2019, including the release of a brand new EP and a sold out North American tour, Ruel returns today with his first musical offering of 2020—a collaboration with Sydney production duo Cosmo’s Midnight. “Down For You” is an adoring serenade, pairing Ruel’s smooth vocals and alluring pull with Cosmo’s Midnight’s playful production and signature sonic universe. Ruel’s soulful words and subtle R&B speak to the throws of love and hypnotic devotion where nothing else can exist, while the unmistakable grin of the Cosmos’ pop-infused sound and funky drum beat forge the hook.

Originally meeting in 2018, Cosmo’s Midnight invited Ruel to make his festival debut as a guest vocalist in their set at Groovin The Moo festival. 2020 sees things come full circle with Ruel now inviting Cosmo’s Midnight to join his set at Sydney’s Laneway Festival to deliver their live performance debut of “Down For You”.

Speaking about the track, Ruel reveals, “Was so much fun writing this one with the boys. The song kinda wrote itself in the session we had. We all felt like we really related to the story we wrote. So happy to finally have a song out with Cosmo and Pat, love u guys.”

Cosmo’s Midnight add, “We met Ruel a few years ago at Groovin The Moo. He joined us on stage for an impromptu on-stage collab. We immediately knew we had to write a song together. The stars didn’t align until a year later, but we made up for lost time and wrote ‘Down For You’. In the studio we were basically talking about how you do things you don’t want to for people you like ala Bobby Caldwell ‘What You Won’t Do’ – and it all flowed from there. We had the song basically done that day, but had to back n forth a bit to finesse the details. Ruel’s a great guy and has taste in music that would make 17 yo Cosmo’s Midnight a bit envious. It was a wholesome experience getting to know him and write ‘Down For You’ together.”
