Rufus Wainwright Teaser + Tour Info

 

Hyped, but heavy.

 

By Blurt Staff

 

In heavy rotation at the BLURT yacht of late: Rufus
Wainwright’s forthcoming Out of the Game,
the Mark Ronson-produced platter due May 1 from Decca. Wait’ll you see what
happens when we put the good Mr. Wainwright on the couch with Contributing
Editor A.D. Amorosi. Meanwhile, here’s a teaser for the album and first single “Out
Of The Game”:

 

 

 

 

Wainwright, whose long-awaited opera Prima Donna opened in Brooklyn at
the BAM on February 19th, calls his new album, “the most pop
album I’ve ever made.” Collaborator/producer Ronson added, “It’s the best work
of my career.”  Uh-huh. Actually, we’re inclined to believe both of
them, based on the music in hand. Recorded in Brooklyn, New York
in the fall of 2011, the twelve songs are hook-laden, memorably arranged tracks
reminiscent of Rufus’ early work.   And in true diva-like fashion,
the spring tour itinerary is perilously restricted, so better jump on those
ticket websites pronto, kids.
