Rufus Wainwright announces new album 'Unfollow The Rules'

After returning earlier this year to deliver his comeback single 'Trouble In Paradise', Rufus Wainwright has now announced his plans for a new studio album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'Unfollow The Rules' will become his ninth LP to date and first pop release since the 2012 LP 'Out Of The Game', is being previewed by the new lead track 'Damsel In Distress', and is expected to arrive on the 24th April via BMG.

Speaking about his latest offering, he said, “’Damsel In Distress’ is an homage to Joni Mitchell in some ways, particularly the structure. My husband and I now live in Laurel Canyon. I wasn’t that familiar with Joni’s music but Jörn became obsessed and took me on a journey into her music. We ended up hanging out with her and I get now why she’s one of the greats. So it’s part Laurel Canyon, part a song about a personal relationship that I’m trying to come to terms with, but mostly my Mitchell virginity being broken.”
