Ruel Shares New Music Video

Ruel opens up the new year with a video for “distance” from his latest EP Bright Lights, Red Eyes, out now via RCA Records. Directed by Grey Ghost (Jeremy Koren), the video masterfully phases through Ruel’s mindset as a carousel of the singer showcases his healing process after a broken heart. “Distance” is the third song to receive a video from the EP following “say it over” feat. Cautious Clay and “as long as you care.”

Bright Lights, Red Eyes is the third release from Ruel following 2019’s Free Time, which MTV described as “an accomplished reflection of Ruel’s stated influences, contemporary touchstones, and his own, growing voice,” and arrives after his collaboration with Omar Apollo in October, “Want U Around,” which is featured on Apollo’s debut project Apolonio.
