Frontman Nate Ruess from chart-toppers fun. talks about his ‘sad rash’, going multi-platinum, and tough Japanese crowds.

With their second album Some Nights, fun. have shot to the top of the charts with the title track but mostly via the mighty anthem ‘We Are Young’ featuring Janelle Monae.

We talk to frontman Nate Ruess about collecting platinum plaques, how he sings the songs to his musician brethren,  working with hip-hop producer Jeff Bhasker, marshalling the huge cast on the album, his punk rock beginnings, and plenty more.
