A little gift from Rufus
Rufus Wainwright fans should note that he's just released one of the most beautiful non-album tracks of his career. It's called Albatross and it's on the new Judy Collins tribute album called Born To The Breed (iTunes US). Lyrically, Judy's style is perfect for Rufus..
Many people wander up the hills
From all around you
Making up your memories and thinking they have found you
They cover you with veils of wonder as if you were a bride
Young men holding violets are curious to know if you have cried
And tell you why
And ask you why
Rufus has been concentrating on writing an opera called Prima Donna, but this new song makes me wish he'd do another folk-pop record.
