It’s been eight years since Rufus Wainwright released a solo album of pop music, eight long years. But we’re here with the good news: he’s back, with a whole LP called Unfollow the Rules coming April 24th.
Rufus is setting his aim high: “My aim is to emulate the greats of yore whose second acts produced their finest work – Leonard Cohen when he made ‘The Future’, when Sinatra became Sinatra in his 40s, when Paul Simon put out ‘Graceland’,” Wainwright said. “Pop music isn’t always about your waistline. Many songwriters improve with age. I’m flying the flag for staying alive!”
The first sighting is a song called Damsel in Distress. He’s not lost an inch. A UK tour is coming.
