Nate Ruess did not do a good job of keeping fun. fans at bay when the rumors began, once again, that the band had disbanded. Billboard further fueled the rumors when they claimed that “sources” close to the band had said egos were causing a riff among the trio.
But while no solid confirmation has been given about the status of the group, we knew for a fact that Ruess would be going on his own (like guitarist Jack Antonoff) with some new music.
Last week, the signer released a teaser of his first solo song, a track titled “Nothing without Love,” which Ruess confirmed, in a recent interview, to be about his current girlfriend.
Unlike last week’s track, the new 15-second teaser of “Nothing without Love” is all instrumentals while last week’s release was Ruess’ isolated vocals.
Check out both teasers below. The full song will premiere on Monday, Feb. 23.
