Rufus Wainwright to release ‘Want’
Rufus Wainwright is set to release a special edition album ‘Want’ on November 28.

Combining both his critically acclaimed ‘Want One’ and ‘Want Two’ LPs, the double CD package will also include two new tracks.

‘Want’ will feature a cover of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Chelsea Hotel No. 2’ recorded live in Brighton and ‘In With The Ladies’ co-written with Alex Gifford of Propellerheads.

‘In With The Ladies’ was originally recorded in New York as part of the ‘Want One’ and ‘Want Two’, sessions but was omitted from the final releases.

Both the tracks will be available next week for you to hear, exclusive to NME.COM.

The release of ‘Want’ will precede Wainwright’s UK tour, which kicks off in London on November 29.
