The progeny of folk heroes Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright was born into a musical family, which accounts for some of his creative restlessness. After his 1998 self-titled debut, the Canadian singer-songwriter pushed his piano pop into ever more operatic and orchestral directions, before dialing back the symphonics on 2010's All Days Are Nights: Songs for Lulu, which he recorded in the wake of his mother's death. Wainwright's latest album, Out of the Game, finds him in higher spirits, working with a wide cast of collaborators including producer Mark Ronson and members of Wilco, the Dap-Kings and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs for his breeziest album yet.

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
