    Default New Rufus Wainwright album - All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu

    Rufus' 6th studio album is titled All Days Are Nights: Songs for Lulu and is due out April 20 in the US. I'm looking forward to hearing it, though I hope it's a bit more restrained than the overstuffed and bombastic Release the Stars. His first two albums remain my favorite. I think it's when he strips things back that he's at his strongest as a songwriter and a performer. Looks like there's a Shakespearean theme going here as I'm fairly certain "all days are nights" is a phrase from a Shakespeare play or sonnet and then he has three tracks named after sonnets (possibly actual art songs?)

    TRACKS:
    Who Are You New York?
    Sad With What I Have
    Martha
    Give Me What I Want and Give It To Me Now!
    True Loves
    Sonnet 43
    Sonnet 20
    Sonnet 10
    The Dream
    What Would I Ever Do With A Rose?
    Les Feux d'artifice t'appellent
    Zebulon

    Also, this documentary on the creation of his opera is airing on Sundance Channel on the 22nd:


    (This isn't under "rumors" because he's touring the UK in April. No chance of a Coachella add.)

    His recent tour dates were all piano-only, and he indicated that the new album was piano-only as well.

    Rufus with piano only. I have seen him twice with piano only, and his voice is the rest of the band. He is brilliant.

    Saw him in Long Beach last month. He played 3 or 4 tunes off this album. He said there was a trilogy of Shakespeare tunes and played those. I'm assuming those are the sonnet songs listed.

    Anywho, he sounded great.
