Rufus Wainwright to make a pop influenced album

Rufus Wainwright has announced that his new album will have an altogether more pop feel.
Great deals on musical instruments

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.
