This is the deluxe two disc set (CD & DVD) - A must have for true fans. The DVD features behind the scenes video of Out Of The Game that includes interviews with Rufus and producer Mark Ronson. A photo gallery has also been added as an additional bonus. From the uptempo opening chords of the title track and first single, to the gospel tinged rock of `Jericho,' through the beauty of `Sometimes You Need' and the emotional pull of `Candles,' this new disc ranks alongside Rufus Wainwright's very best. Musicians on the album include the Dap-Kings who Mark used for the groundbreaking Amy Winehouse Back To Black album and his own `Record Collection'; Wilco's Nels Cline; Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs; Andrew Wyatt from Miike Snow; Sean Lennon and Martha Wainwright. Influences, as ever, were all encompassing. Mark says Out of the Game "has a real 70's, Laurel Canyon spirit" while Rufus cites "all the greats- Elton, Freddie Mercury, David Bowie - basically the brash and beautiful. It's also very Rufus."
