Michael Rault – “I’ll Be There” Video

Last we heard from retro pop-rocker Michael Rault, he was hinting toward a follow-up LP to 2015’s Living Daylight with “Sleep With Me.” We now know that Rault’s new album is called It’s A New Day Tonight, and today the Montreal musician pays and plays another homage to the Beatles in the album’s opener, “I’ll Be There.”

“Rain, shine, I don’t mind,” Rault sings at the chorus, mirroring the desire for clearer skies in “Here Comes The Sun.” In the accompanying video by Alex Kingsmill, Rault sits in the back of a VW pickup truck and zooms around the city and countryside abound with rainbows and fireworks, finding light wherever the clouds may be. See where he winds up below.
