Rufus Wainwright goes back into the studio

A 2007 release is pencilled in

Rufus Wainwright has revealed that he is working “feverishly” on the follow up to 2004’s ’Want Two’ and 2003’s ’Want One’.

The singer is planning a release for 2007.

A posting on his official website (August 1), reads: “Rufus is presently working feverishly on his new album for release in 2007. Sessions have taken place in New York, Berlin and London.

“Contrary to published reports, there is no specific release date set, the album has not been titled nor has a first single been chosen. You’ll be the first to know if you’re a regular visitor to this site.”

As previously reported by NME.COM, the singer is set to play V Festival, at Weston Park in Staffordshire and Hylands Park in Chelmsford (August 19-20).
