Nate Ruess - "Nothing Without Love" [Music Video Premiere!]
That was rather quick.
This morning Nate Ruess released his debut solo single “Nothing Without Love” on iTunes and in the afternoon he premiered the official music video through VEVO.
Directed by Anthony Mandler, there’s a cool fact you need to know about the "Nothing Without Love" clip before you watch it. "That water tank I was in was where they shot the last scene in "Titanic". It was freezing, and after 4 hours in there, I too was about to sink”, posted Nate on his Facebook.
I’m really liking “Nothing Without Love”. And Fun. fans should be feeling happy because “Nothing Without Love” is in all truth a Fun. song even though the other two members were nowhere involved its recording. I mean, tt’s Nate Ruess doing the singing, and the drum-heavy, epic production is so Fun.-like. As I said in my single review post, Nate won’t really be needing to go back with Fun as he's already duplicated the band's sound.
As for the recently-premiered music video, it is powerful. It shows Mr. Ruess belting out the song in the middle of a deserted city downtown, as images of him floating in the ocean (although Nate just revealed it was actually a tank of water…but I’md sure “the ocean” was what they were intending viewers to believe) and carelessly running across a field with a love interest.
