Rufus Wainwright is set to release new compilation 'Vibrate: The Best Of' on March 3rd.
A truly idiosyncratic talent, Rufus Wainwright has spent more than a decade doing whatever the hell he likes. In an era dominated by small projects, the American artist has dared to be flamboyant.
As a starting point, 'Vibrate: The Best Of' looks ideal. A broad selection of Wainwright's work, the compilation contains eighteen songs and opens with 'Going To A Town' from 'Release The Stars'.
Picking highlights from each of his studio albums, Rufus Wainwright also includes new track 'Me And Liza'. In addition to this, a bonus disc will be added to the compilation featuring a raft of rarities and lesser heard gems.
