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 -

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 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

In addition, the unique visualizer video for the album's most recent single, "AhHa" -- created by Barcelona's Tigrelab -- can be viewed now at

"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

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).
