Rufus Wainwright's new music is coming June 29 to iTunes.

Gee, I don't belong to iTunes, but since Rufus is the Greatest Living Artist Since Kate Bush, I'd guess I should join now. Because his label is a shitstorm, Rufus is doing a teaser on iTUnes and then releasing "Want 2" or a series of EPs before the end of the year. Here are some song titles from it: Gay Messiah, I'm Not Ready, The Art Teacher and Homegrown Waltz.

Bit of The Art Teacher lyrics:

There I was in uniform
Looking at the art teacher.
I was just a girl then;
Never have I loved since then.

He was not that much older than I was
He had taken our class to the Metropolitan Museum.
He asked us what our favorite work of art was,
But never could I tell it was him.
Oh, I wish I could tell him--
Oh, I wish I could have told him.
