Rufus Wainwright, an accomplished piano and guitar player, has announced that he is moving away from his very distinct style of music and opting for a more pop-influenced album.

Wainwright, known for his unique voice, has been working on new material with Mark Ronson in a New York Studio, which he described as making him feel "so damn cool", reported Rolling Stone magazine.

This new approach marks a dramatic change in sound for Wainwright, who recently worked on an opera and a dark and thoughtful piano-led album.

He told the magazine: "The main objective – not for the entire album necessarily, but for portions of it – is to be danceable. I just want to make something that you love, driving around in your car listening or losing your mind to on a dance floor."

The collaboration with Ronson came about because of the respect Wainwright has for the man with the Midas touch, saying that the producer had made a lot of hit records that sounded amazing.

Wainwright comes from a family known for their musical sensibilities. He is the son of folk singers Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, and his sister Martha is an equally celebrated singer-songwriter.
