It’s finally coming – Ruel announces long-awaited debut album with ‘MUST BE NICE’

This one’s been a long time coming. Pop prodigy Ruel is preparing to land in full this March on long-awaited debut album 4th Wall.
The British-Australian star has long been regarded as one of the industry’s hottest prospects pairing a lyricism far beyond his age with a classy fresh take on an easy-going pop sound.
The announcement of the record comes with latest single ‘MUST BE NICE’, written with long-term collaborator M Phazes. The ballad lets Ruel’s silky tones shine strong as he muses on a break-up.

Speaking on the single, Ruel said:”’MUST BE NICE’ is the first time I’ve ever released a ballad as a single, and it would have to be one of my favourite tracks on the record. Lyrically it’s such an easy song to grasp, essentially, it’s just about a break-up. But I wanted to take a step back and try and give it a new perspective.
“All breakups are difficult in their own way, but when you see the other person getting on with their life, it hits so much harder. I feel like the lyric “f–k it must be nice” captures that perfectly.”
The upcoming debut record is set to be an ambitious project to showcase Ruel’s songwriting in a new light. 4th Wall is inspired by scenes from films including The Truman Club and Fight Club as he imagines his life is being filmed for someone else’s entertainment.
