Is there anything Australian teenage singer-songwriter Ruel can't do?
The creative maverick has not only dropped the news he will release a new EP, 'Bright Lights, Red Eyes', on 23 October (pre-order it here
), but the 17 year old has today launched his own television network. No kidding.
Set in an alternative universe, RuelVision
is a 24-hour TV network filled with a non-stop variety of TV shows featuring Ruel.
Working alongside his creative director Grey Ghost (Jeremy Koren), Ruel has developed more than 70 pieces of content (including exercise, news, drama, trivia and cooking programmes, as well as painting demonstrations).
You can drift off to sleep as Ruel reads classic fairy tales by the fire, or get your ASMR fix as Ruel whispers in your ear the work of Pitbull.
"[RuelVision] has a whole bunch of different TV shows that I've created during lockdown," Ruel says.
"I've been away so long and haven't put something out in ages, so I knew I had to come back biiiiig.
"I had so much fun filming, writing and creating these funny lil skits, so I really hope you guys enjoy them too."
The 'Bright Lights, Red Eyes' EP was written entirely in Paris; the first taste is 'As Long As You Care'.
Ruel is also working on his debut album alongside M-Phazes and THIEF (both of who have nurtured Ruel since his debut single). "It's a lot more layered, I want each project to have more meaning and purpose," Ruel says.
"I want to reflect on something important in my life, and give across a message that if people are feeling the same way that I am, it's okay."
