RUFUS WAINWRIGHT RETURNS TO FESTIVAL CASTELL DE PERALADA 2020 WITH A NEW ALBUM
The singer-songwriter will present his latest pop album “Unfollow The Rules” on 10th July in the evening in his only performance in Catalonia.
An artist who refuses to be pigeon-holed, he will be premièring “Unfollow The Rules”, his ninth studio album, and first pop album since 2012, where we find him at the peak of his abilities, entering artistic maturity with passion, honesty and a new boldness he has acquired without forgoing any of his usual creativity and daring. The first single “Trouble In Paradise”, which he presented late last year, was received with a great deal of attention by the international media.
Produced by Mitchell Froom at a number of legendary studios in Los Angeles, including Sound City Studios, United Recording and EastWest Studios, the album acts as a finale to Act I of an extraordinary career that, just like "Unfollow The Rules”, began in the studios of Los Angeles, but that is also the opening lines of a new and exciting chapter. Inspired by middle age, married life, fatherhood, friends, loss, London and Laurel Canyon, songs like "Only The People That Love" and the energetic and symphonic "Hatred" see new challenges that have forced the singer-songwriter to confront his past to make sense of how he has grown both in his role as a musician and as the happy family man he has become.
