Rolling Stone’s David Browne visited with Rufus Wainwright at Glam Sear Sound studio, where he’s working with Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Black Lips) on his new album, Out of the Game, due out on May 8th, 2012.

It will apparently be a “poppy, accessible – even rocking – new LP” and will include collaborations with Sean Lennon and members of the Dap-Kings. The article indicates that the work of Queen, David Bowie and Elton John has influenced Wainwright on his new songs.
