London-born, Sydney-bred singer-songwriter and multi-talented performer Ruel releases a new track and visualizers for “LET THE GRASS GROW” via RCA Records (listen/watch HERE). The track was written by Ruel and Peter James Harding and produced by M-Phazes. The visual was shot in Byron Bay Australia while Ruel was on a surfing retreat with The Surfrider Foundation.
Following the retreat, Ruel signed on to become Surfrider Australia’s newest Ambassador. As an avid surfer, he has a strong connection with the ocean and beaches, and for many years, has felt a need to take action.
“LET THE GRASS GROW” offers a poignant and personal commentary from Ruel about his concerns surrounding global warming and climate change. He says of the track, “When I was writing this song with PJ, we were talking about things we think about that keep us up at night. The reality that the earth is heading in a terrifying direction, was a hard concept to fit in a song so we tried to make it so the song could be about a person too. The song’s theme is just to not force nature and let everything happen to us. It’s dark, but it’s a real thought I have often. I’m really proud of this song because, it gives you a little bit more to think about. It hits home a little more."
Ruel will make his return to the UK in April with a show at Shepherds Bush Empire in London on 8th April. For tickets and more information please visit: https://www.oneruel.com/.
