Feature album - Release the Stars by Rufus Wainwright

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:50 pm on 14 July 2009

Our Feature Album is the 5th studio release by the Canadian-American singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright, from a marvellously musical family, son of Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainright. Enormously talented himself, an interesting and tumultuous life. Nearly died from a gay bashing you could call it in Hyde Park London, struggled with addictions and credits Elton John with getting him straight and sober.
