“Out Of The Game”

    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.
