Having worked with producer Mark Ronson on his forthcoming album ‘Out Of The Game’, Rufus Wainwright has now confirmed he’ll release the LP via Polydor on 23 Apr.

Described by the singer-songwriter as “the most pop album I’ve ever made”, it was recorded in New York and features guest contributions from Nick Zinner, Sean Lennon, Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, Rufus’s sister Martha, and soul troupe The Dap Kings, the band also enlisted by Ronson to play on Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back To Black’.

A modest Ronson offers his thoughts on the project: “It’s the best work of my career. It has a real seventies, Laurel Canyon spirit”.
