Rufus Wainwright’s forthcoming album, “Folkocracy”, is an album of folk classics that features a number of notable collaborations, including John Legend, Brandi Carlile, David Byrne, Sheryl Crow, Nicole Scherzinger, Chaka Khan, Andrew Bird, Anohni and many more. Praised by the New York Times for his genuine originality Rufus Wainwright has established himself as one of the great male vocalists, songwriters, and composers of his generation. The New York born, Montreal raised singer songwriter has released 10 studio albums to date, 3 DVD’s, and 5 live albums, including the Grammy nominated “Rufus Does Judy At Carnegie Hall”.

“Down In The Willow Garden” feat. @BrandiCarlile is out now! As well as the music video that features the making of the song together in the studio.

The singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright has shared another single, ‘Heading For Home (feat. John Legend)’. ‘Heading For Home’ heralds Wainwright’s eagerly awaited new album, “Folkocracy”, a star-studded collection of folk music reinventions arriving Friday, June 2nd via BMG.

Speaking on the collaboration with Legend, Rufus Wainwright said: “John Legend has arguably one of the most beautiful voices in the world, and listening to him singing is pure joy. I am now one of the few who can say that it can get even better, and that is when you sing with him. Thank you for coming on this folk journey with me and singing Peggy Seeger’s ‘Heading for Home’ with me. It was an effortless flight, an elegant glide, a fulfilling soar, not just a mere walk home.”

“I’ve been a fan of Rufus for quite some time, and it was a true joy to sing with him on this beautiful song,” says John Legend.

“Folkocracy”, which follows Wainwright’s most recent studio album, 2020’s Grammy and Juno Award-nominated “Unfollow The Rules“, sees the critically acclaimed artist celebrating his upcoming 50th birthday by revisiting his roots, of childhood summers spent at folk festivals and watching his famous family on stage.

Produced by longtime collaborator Mitchell Froom (Paul McCartney, Crowded House), on “Folkocracy”, Wainwright is joined by a spectacular line up of friends, family members, and other special guest artists 

I am excited to announce that this will be a part of my upcoming album ‘Folkocracy’ which will be released June 2nd!
