Earlier this week, we brought you Rufus Wainwright’s “Montauk,” and lamented that it didn’t sound much like what we’d imagined when we heard that Mark Ronson was producing the singer-songwriters new album. Well, now we know what Ronson’s production will sound like on a new single, and it’s more like what we imagined: “Out of the Game” was just premiered on Ronson’s Tumblr, and it imagines Wainwright as a member of the late Rat Pack, a slick crooner with some old-timey backing music. We’re still not sure if this is a net positive for Wainwright, but we’re still intrigued. Check it out over on Tumblr.
Out of the Game is due out on April 23 via Decca.
