This writer is going to use this moment to reveal something he’s long kept a secret from many people: I’m a Rufus Wainwright fan. That’s right, this cantankerous, snarky writer can’t help but get caught up in the musician’s larger-than-life pop songs and is probably the only person around these parts looking forward to his new album Out Of The Game. And Montreal’s proud son has snagged a pretty great actress to star is the first video off the album.
Helena Bonham Carter pins up her hair and puts on some glasses to play a librarian with a bit of a kinky side in the video. Wainwright himself stars as three different people who visit the library….and oh shit, is he wearing a t-shirt for Sonic Youth‘s Goo? Memories…Anyway, check it out below. The Mark Ronson-produced album lands on May 1st. [Vulture]
