Rufus Wainwright will carry out music day by day from his house in Los Angeles in wake of the coronavirus outbreak. In a collection referred to as Musical Everydays, the singer-songwriter will play one track from his catalogue each day on piano.
“In these dire times, I want to share some music with you all from the warmth and comfort of our home in Los Angeles,” he wrote on his Instagram on Tuesday. “Hopefully you’re at your homes with your loved ones as well. We have to stay positive and I feel that music and art are a large part of what gets us through times like these.”
“It’s even more essential to be reminded about what it really means to be human: compassionate, caring, creative,” he continued. “From now on, until the end of this isolation, I will record a song a day.” He then launched into his monitor “Grey Gardens” from 2001’s Poses.
Wainwright normally posts movies of himself acting on piano with the hashtag #RobeRecitals and #MusicalMondays, solely now followers will see his gown much more typically. “The more we stick to the rules of isolating ourselves, the more we can slow the spread of the virus down,” he mentioned.
Wainwright is simply one of many many musicians taking their performances to the internet, streaming by way of social media platforms or on their very own web sites. Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard simply introduced his personal daily performances, whereas Neil Young is gearing as much as announce the primary date of his Fireside Sessions.
Wainwright not too long ago introduced a brand new album, Unfollow the Rules, out April 24th by way of BMG. It’s his ninth LP and first pop report since 2012’s Out of the Game. He dropped the LP’s lead single “Trouble in Paradise” final fall, adopted by the Joni Mitchell-inspired “Damsel in Distress.”
