Nate Ruess Presents "The Grand Romantic"

New Short Film Directed by Anthony Mandler Premieres Today Exclusively at Apple Music; North American Headline Tour Begins in September Along With Slate of Top Billed Festival Appearances; Acclaimed Solo Debut Album, "GRAND ROMANTIC," Available Now - smarturl.it/grandromantic

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 25, 2015) - GRAMMY® Award-winning recording artist Nate Ruess is releasing an exclusive short film based upon his debut solo album, "GRAND ROMANTIC." Debuting on Apple Music, The Grand Romantic, the acclaimed collection -- which features the hit single "Nothing Without Love" -- is available now from Fueled By Ramen.

Directed by Anthony Mandler -- who also helmed Ruess' hugely popular "Nothing Without Love" companion video -- The Grand Romantic brilliantly captures the album's unique spirit, its urbane pop examination of contemporary love and longing now articulated in glorious widescreen. The three-part comic drama tracks the NYC-based artist as he struggles to find his voice -- and make a record -- all while also showcasing new musical numbers from the acclaimed album, including "AhHa," "Great Big Storm," and of course, the smash single, "Nothing Without Love." Please see http://apple.co/TheGrandRomantic for more.

"Great Big Storm," the latest single from "GRAND ROMANTIC," is climbing Hot AC radio charts -- currently holding #34 placement -- with song adds across the country. The track's companion video can be viewed now at http://smarturl.it/GBSvideo.

In addition, the unique visualizer video for the album's most recent single, "AhHa" -- created by Barcelona's Tigrelab -- can be viewed now at www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWnCnEtUcrE.

"Nothing Without Love" remains a multi-format success, a top 20 favorite at both Hot AC and Modern Rock Radio while also hitting Billboard's overall "Hot 100." The song's companion video -- directed by the aforementioned Anthony Mandler (fun., Rihanna, Taylor Swift) -- has earned more than 6.5 million views at You Tube alone; "Nothing Without Love" is streaming now at www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssVvkfcL9HI.

Ruess -- who is of course known around the globe as the singer/songwriter of indie pop supergroup fun. -- recently unveiled a major North American headline tour, beginning September 23rd at Indianapolis, IN's Egyptian Room and then continuing through the fall (see attached itinerary). Meanwhile, Ruess is set for top-billed appearances at such upcoming festivals as St. Louis's LouFest (September 12th), Boston's Boston Calling (September 25th-27th), Washington, DC's Landmark Music Festival (September 26th-27th), and Austin, Texas's ACL Music Festival (October 2nd-4th & 9th-11th).
