Rumer to release all-male covers album



Jazz and soul songstress Rumer will release her second album, ‘Boys Don’t Cry’, via Atlantic Records on 28 May, it’s been announced.

Comprising covers of 70s-era singles from various musical men, the LP sees Rumer revisit the less prominent works of Bob Marley, Todd Rundgren, Neil Young, Isaac Hayes and Townes Van Zandt.

Says Rumer: “This project is about passion, and paying respect to other people’s work. I went on a journey and the music tells that story”.
