Of the record Rault says: “Musically it came out of a period of dissatisfaction, relatively and personally, as I found myself pushing against all the limitations of my abilities and approaches to making music. The editing and patching together of tracks on the album was minimal compared to modern standards, which forced me to get more used to having to perform each song all the way through in the studio and then live with the imperfections afterwards.”


Michael Rault ‘Sleep With Me’

We love MICHAEL RAULT. Now signed with Wick Records (the rock imprint of Daptones)  expect great things are guaranteed. His critically acclaimed album Living Daylight was released in 2015 (and raved about by us). Since then he’s been busy at work on his follow-up. To give fans a taste of what he’s been working on, here’s the video for his new song ‘Sleep With Me’. 

Directed by Laura-Lynn Petrick (who has made videos for Weyes Blood and Nick Waterhouse, among others), ‘Sleep With Me’ is a gorgeous Super-8 dream. “I wrote this song about dreams and sleeping, and escaping the realities of day-to-day life,” says Rault. “It also has slick guitarmonies! I was digging Wings and ELO and the grandiose pop arrangements of the ’70s, and decided to try my hand at something kind of over the top like that.” Read more Michael Rault ‘Sleep With Me’
