Back in February of 2011, we learned that singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright became the father of a baby girl named Viva Katherine Wainwright Cohen (who was birthed by Lorca Cohen, daughter of Leonard Cohen) but today we get our first look at his newest baby. Rufus is readying the release of a new album titled Out of the Game and if you click below, you will get your first look at the album art for the new disc. Unsurprisingly, Rufus plays the dandy in his new cover artwork … check it out.
I’ve been a Rufus fan from the start … and while I wasn’t too crazy with his past 2 albums, I remain a faithful fan. I’m really excited about this new album because it was produced by the amazing Mark Ronson. Ronson has the uncanny ability of taking already talented musicians and making them sound better … not by changing them but by enhancing their talents in new ways. Rufus is a dramatic crooner … I’m really looking forward to hearing what his work sounds like now that he’s worked with Mark Ronson. This album cover is fun … but I can’t wait to hear the album in full.
