Unfollow The Rules

  • Rufus Wainwright - Unfollow The Rules
10th July 2020 / CD & 2LP / BMG
"Rufus Wainwright’s first original album in eight years isn’t so much a reinvention as an opulently crafted highlight reel, a career-spanning sampler of the singer’s many styles and guises."

Rufus Wainwright

Unfollow The Rules


Rufus Wainwright appears for the first time as a more elder statesman with Unfollow The Rules. His voice sounds incredible, just delicious really. Plenty of humour whilst taking on broader themes of a well-lived life. We love the guy.

Ninth studio album Unfollow The Rules finds Rufus Wainwright at the peak of his powers, entering artistic maturity with passion, honesty and a new found fearlessness, while remaining as mischievous as ever. Returning to the same legendary Los Angeles studio where he laid down his landmark debut album, Unfollow The Rules act as both a 'bookend' to his debut and as a distillation of his experience across an extraordinary twenty-one year career so far.

Unfollow The Rules find Rufus at something of a crossroads, inspired by middle age, married life, fatherhood, friends, loss, London and Laurel Canyon. Compelled to look to new challenges, yet looking back across two decades of running riot with rules, making sense of his maturity as a musician and celebrating the contentment family life has brought him.
