RUEL Releases, “Kiss Me” Taken from His Upcoming EP “Adaptations”


Bingkai Karya-Australian phenom Ruel has released “Kiss Me,” his latest single and first on Giant Music. Which was filmed at the Parroquia del Purísimo Corazón de María in Mexico City. It is the cathedral where Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet film was shoot.

“I’ve always found covers a hard task to tackle; it’s a tricky balance to make sure you do justice to the original and put your own spin on it,” says Ruel, explaining the complexity of taking on such a project. He felt that the best approach for this 90s classic was to keep it basic and stripped back.

Originally debuted by Sixpence None the Richer way back in 1997, Ruel’s reimagined hit of the pop classic is the first single from his upcoming EP “Adaptations.” It is a collection of cover songs, which will release on August 1st.

Ruel will make his first-ever live appearance at Lollapalooza in Chicago in August. It features a special Lollapalooza aftershow performance set for the Bottom Lounge in Chicago.

To celebrate the release of his EP, Ruel has also confirmed shows in New York at the Gramercy Theatre. Also in Los Angeles at the iconic Roxy Theatre. 

With over three billion streams to his name Ruel is best known for his singles “Painkiller,” “Dazed & Confused,” and “GROWING UP IS ____.” The pop icon in-waiting has collaborated across various genres with peers such as singer/songwriters Omar Apollo, Holly Humberstone, JVKE. As well as producer SG Lewis and Hip-Hop artists Denzel Curry and GoldLink.
