GLOBAL NEWS—The music video for Australian singer-songwriter Ruel‘s new single,I DON’T WANNA BE LIKE YOU,” which was released by RCA Records/Sony Music Entertainment, has been made available.

Directed by James Chappell, the visuals find the pop prodigy escaping an army of folks dressed in blue jumpsuits with his getaway vehicle. 

“I DON’T WANNA BE LIKE YOU” is an upbeat alt-pop tune with a breezy chorus that’s worth singing along to, and an indelible groove fit for the summer. The song is part of his debut studio album, 4th WALL, which debuted at No. 3 in Australia and No. 10 in New Zealand upon its release.
