Nate Ruess made a name for himself as the lead singer for the band FUN. With hits such as “Some Nights” and “We Are Young,” the guys were a huge success. So why would Ruess want to go out on his own?
“I really needed some time off,” says Ruess, who had been touring with FUN. With that time off, Ruess started writing, and those songs became more personal than anything he had ever written. Falling in love was very important to Ruess when he began writing the album, Grand Romantic, which hits stores on June 16.
