Rufus Wainwright’s – ‘Out Of The Game’ Single Available to Download March 13

~ Album Out Of The Game out April 24 ~

(Toronto, ON - 22 February 2012) Rufus Wainwright releases ‘Out Of The Game’ -

the first single from his new, Mark Ronson produced album of the same title – March 13 via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.

It’s the perfect opener to an album which unashamedly celebrates the spirit of the 70s, and which Rufus calls “the most pop album” he’s ever made. A bold, heavenly jewel in the crown, ‘Out Of The Game’ is undeniably Rufus, his honey-toned voice cushioned by gospel singers as it glides through piano and electric guitar.

Rufus explains that the song was inspired by the YouTube obsessed kids of today. “For the first two verses I'm complaining, but in the third verse, it's tinged with envy as well,” he says. “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 single is taken from one of the most eagerly anticipated albums of the year – Out Of The Game – Rufus Wainwright’s 7th studio album which is released on April 24. Highlights include the gospel infused rock of ‘Jericho’, the classical minimalism of ‘Montauk’ and ‘Candles’, a stunning and poignant ode to Rufus’ late mother, Kate McGarrigle.

Out Of The Game is a beautifully delivered reminder that the wonders of Rufus Wainwright will never cease.
