“Look at you, look at you, look at you,” might be something your parents screamed at you (after spilling cereal all over the living room rug, perhaps?), but it’s far less damning here coming from one Rufus Wainwright. On the title track to his forthcoming Mark Ronson-produced LP, Out of the Game, the jaunty, coastal-like sweeper oozes with smarmy charm. Recently, Wainwright took us on a trip to “Montauk”, consider this the lighthearted montage that takes place prior. Find the the track below, followed by album’s tracklist and Wainwright’s touring itinerary below.

Out of the Game hits stores May 1st via Decca. Collaborators include Wilco’s Nels Cline, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, Sean Lennon, members of the Da-Kings, and Martha Wainwright.
