Rufus Wainwright - Take All My Loves - 9 Shakespeare Sonnets

Take All My Loves 9 Shakespeare Sonnets is the new studio album by American-Canadian singer-songwriter and composer Rufus Wainwright which is expected to release via itunes by April 22nd 2016 Digitally.

Delivered by Rufus and his sister Martha as if fronting Queens Of The Stone Age, an apt vessel for “Some fierce thing replete with too much rage”.

Two interpretations of “A Woman’s Face” demarcate the album’s 16 tracks — a “pop” version done by Wainwright and an operatic version by Austrian coloratura soprano Anna Prohaska, who sings four other tracks on the album. Both are gorgeous, but the source material suggests interesting interpretations.

It’s all bit stuffy and long-winded, even for ardent fans of Wainwright’s, but, if nothing else, it proves his uncanny versatility as a musician.

Release Date : April, 22nd, 2016
