Australian singer-songwriter and pop star Ruel is coming back to Manila for his 4th Wall World Tour on May 26, 2023 at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura Premier. Tickets will be on-sale on April 11, 2023, starting at 10AM via SMTickets.com and SM Tickets outlets nationwide. The concert is presented by Wilbros Live.
At twenty years of age and now on the cusp of releasing his debut album 4th Wall, Ruel’s discovery of self-assurance is perfectly timed.
The Sydney-bred singer-songwriter speaks confidently about the release’s authenticity. He said, “It’s exactly the music I wanted to write… what I had in my head. It’s me executing my ideas, instead of trying to execute other people’s ideas in my way.”
Executively produced by long-time collaborator M-Phazes (Khalid, Noah Cyrus, Remi Wolf), 4th Wall was originally heading down a pop and R&B lane until the pandemic acted as a major personal and professional conduit for Ruel. His matured identity galvanized the decision to forge his own creative directive, and played a vital part in expanding his musical horizons.
Ruel notes, “It took way longer than anticipated to get this record right. I spent the last three years writing it and wound up with over 100 songs. I rewrote half of them and re- recorded most of them… It’s been the biggest journey making this record.”
These revelations are strikingly obvious in the 4th Wall singles that Ruel has treated his audience to, including the dancefloor anthem “GROWING UP IS ____,” the dream-like “Let the Grass Grow,” the poignant social and personal observations of “You Against Yourself,” and most recently, the beautifully emotive ballad “Must Be Nice.”
Since making his debut in 2017 at the age of 14, Ruel has fast become one of his generation’s most influential artists. Sitting with over two billion global streams, 1.2 million Instagram followers, and five platinum records to his name, Ruel is both a seasoned global superstar and a record-breaking musician for tomorrow’s generation.
Add to this stellar collection of bucket list achievements, Ruel is also the youngest artist ever to win Breakthrough Artist at the ARIA Awards and the youngest artist to sell out the Sydney Opera House… twice. Not surprisingly, Ruel has caught the attention of some of the industry’s most respected individuals, including icon Elton John and musical tastemaker Zane Lowe both championing his career developments.
Along with three sold-out world tours, Ruel has shared stages with Khalid, Shawn Mendes, played Tyler, the Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw festival, and released collaborations with Denzel Curry, JVKE, Omar Apollo, and Cosmo’s Midnight.
Now three EPs deep – Ready, Free Time, and Bright Lights, Red Eyes, the time is well and truly nigh for 4th Wall to take flight. With an impressive collection of platinum and double platinum hits including “Younger,” “Dazed & Confused,” ‘Painkiller,” “Real Thing” and “Face to Face,” the release of 4th Wall will further solidify his position as one of Australia’s most successful artists.
