April Fools — Rufus Wainwright
One of my favorite Rufus songs, ever.
I’ve been a huge Rufus fan for a long time…but I don’t think I’ve actually ever seen this video (how?!). Love love.
I’ve seen plenty of shows at Carnegie Hall and my fair share of Rufus Wainwright…but there’s something rather special when you combine the two.
Since April, “the greatest songwriter on the planet”—according to Elton John, anyway—has been traveling the globe in support of his sixth studio album, All Days Are Nights: Songs for Lulu (Decca/Universal Music Group). It’s a stripped–down affair, with nothing but a piano accompanying…
Your new album is so pared down—it’s essentially you and the piano. How does that change the touring experience?
It’s a double–edged sword. On one hand, it’s much more traumatizing and treacherous and technically difficult because you’re just really out there and exposed. But on the other hand, I get the full paycheck at the end of the night.
