Rufus Wainwright Reveals New Album Teaser

Rufus Wainwright has revealed an album teaser of his forthcoming release, produced by Mark Ronson.

Wainright is often described as one of the finest songwriters of our generation, and on the 23rd of April, he'll be releasing his seventh studio album, Out Of The Game. The Canadian singer has described his latest effort as the "most pop album" he's ever made.

His collaboration with Mark Ronson was somewhat unexpected in the music world, but with Ronson's previous work with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Adele, ODB, Kaiser Chiefs and Sean Paul, it'll definitely be an exciting pairing.

In the following video, the two describe the specific 70's style they were aiming for:

The first single, and title track, is set for release on the 16th of April via Decca/Polydor has described the track as being inspired by the YouTube obsessed youth of today:

“For the first two verses I'm complaining, but in the third verse, it's tinged with envy as well. I'd like to be that age again and that silly, that excited about idiotic things. So I'm not being insensitive, just tired.

The album also features guest performances by Nick Zinner, Nels Cline, Martha Wainwright, Sean Lennon, and many more.
