Michael Rault

"Sleep With Me" (Wick Records)

Contact Jacob Daneman about Michael Rault

It’s been a couple of years since the world heard from Canada’s Michael Rault (his critically acclaimed album Living Daylight was released in 2015), but that’s because he’s been busy at work on his follow-up. Wick Records (the rock imprint of legendary Daptone Records) is proud to announce the signing of Michael Rault. To give fans a taste of what he’s been working on, he’s shared a 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 & ELO and the grandiose pop arrangements of the 70’s, and decided to try my hand at something kind of over the top like that.”


Rault recorded the song at Daptone’s House of Soul studio in Brooklyn with Wayne Gordon (King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Mark Ronson, Bruno Mars) engineering and co-producing, Rault on guitar and piano duties, Mikey Post (Naomi Shelton, Reigning Sound) on the drums, Benny Trokan (Charles Bradley, Lee Fields) on bass, and Gabe Roth (Sharon Jones, Amy Winehouse) on mixing and string arrangements.
