Montreal’s Michael Rault is celebrating a dreamy new chapter in his up-and-coming career! This Daptone-affiliated singer-songwriter first emerged three years ago with his debut full-length Living Daylight but following a period of touring, Rault decided to re-tool his recording process. Emulating the minimalist techniques used by power pop and folk rock groups of the ’70s, Rault’s new album is ten tracks of retro pop rock reverie. Rault joined us not too long ago for SXSW and his sophomore album It’s A New Day Tonight comes out May 18th. Rault released the music video for his lead single last month and you can enjoy a free download today of “I’ll Be There”.
