Rufus Wainwright reveals new album theme
Rufus Wainwright has spoken about the theme of new album ’Release The Stars’.

The LP, which is due to be released in May, has been executive-produced by Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys.

Wainwright said of the new record: “The theme is just about releasing your love and your brilliance, or acting on your impulses and basically laying it all down on the line.

“I think so much of life is spent hoarding and saving and protecting, and very few of us really live our full potential.”

The singer is set to perform ’In Bloom’, his collaboration with contemporary dance company Stephen Petronio, at the University of Michigan between February 16 and 17.

Wainwright is also due to recreate Judy Garland’s 1961 concert at London’s Palladium on February 18 and 25.

Speaking about his recent creative activity, Wainwright told the Ann Arbor News: “I’m definitely in my prime and ready to flex all the artistic muscles I have been training over the years.”
