Edmonton-born, Montreal-based singer-songwriter Michael Rault has announced his new album, It’s A New Day Tonight, will arrive on May 18th via Sleepless Records in Canada and Wick/Daptone across the globe. Rault shared a new video for the forthcoming record’s first single, “I’ll Be There.”
Watch the latest from Rault below.
Like a good Canadian boy, Rault’s inspiration for the title of the new record came from a pregame interview with a hockey player.
“He said, ‘It’s a new day tonight, we’ve got to put the past behind us.’ At first, I thought it was an awkward phrase,” says Rault in a release. “But I quickly thought: ‘Awkward turn of phrase… or a good album title?’ [The title track] is almost completely describing a very positive nightlife experience, but the opening line implies that this evening is coming as a major relief after spending the majority of the day depressed.”
