Rufus: Stay for awhile...

The unexpected first sounds from Rufus Wainwright "big pop album" Out Of The Game are not pop at all... Montauk is a track written for his baby daughter, Viva.

Click to hear Montauk via KCRW

For those outside the US, Montauk is a place. A quiet beach town on the far tip of Long Island, New York. I think it's fair to say it's a retreat for the wealthy. Rufus - in his usual sassy style - talked in 2010 to the NY Post about his favorite places in Montauk.

UPDATE: Watch this...

Thanks Torr

Listening to Van Dyke Parks' "Arrangements: Volume One", today, I can't help but want he and Rufus to work together. The result would be a baroque pop masterpiece.

BTW - I like "Montauk". Thanks for posting it.

Hi Morrie! You know Van Dyke Parks did the strings for his first album, right? Which one could say was indeed a baroque pop masterpiece, as you eloquently put it.
