Rufus Wainwright marks his sixth studio album with All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu, to be released April 20th on the Decca Label Group.
The album was written and produced by Wainwright with two songs produced and one co-produced by Pierre Marchand, who also mixed the album. The two last collaborated on Rufus' Poses album.
The album is hugely personal, deeply emotional and all channeled through Rufus fingers, his voice and a piano. Rufus admits recording All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu was one of the most difficult things he has ever done. After hiding behind a 70-piece orchestra with my opera you can blame everything on the tuba player. With this album, when the curtain is raised its me on my own, says Rufus.
Strapped with a resounding emotional heft and steeped in beauty, the intense 12-track record opens in arresting fashion with Who Are You New York?, Rufus ode to the city. Les Feux dartifice tappellent, which is the final aria from Rufus debut opera, Prima Donna, is another highlight along with Zebulon, a majestic song about one of Rufus high school sweethearts.
Also featured are three Shakespeare sonnets which Rufus has gorgeously crafted in his very own inimitable style. They are selected from 24 pieces of music that Rufus wrote for a theatrical production, Sonette with director Robert Wilson in Berlin last year.
Set to be one of the highlights for 2010s musical calendar, Rufus Wainwright will recreate the intensity of All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu on an 11-date solo UK tour in April followed by European and North American legs. The shows will spotlight Rufus with just a piano and microphone, replicating the setup of his studio process.
"It's an opportunity to have this slight moment of intimacy with me, which I know everybody wants, laughs Rufus.
