Rufus! Rufus! Rufus!

I have Rufus Wainwright’s Sonnet 29 in heavy rotation on my playlist (which otherwise consists of some serious heavy rock and metal, headbanging sorts of stuff).  I’m always on the lookout for more.  Apparently he’s all over YouTube, though.

Anybody know if he’s done studio versions of these?  Live video from YouTube is fun, but not nearly as good as having an MP3 you can take with you all the time.

Sonnet 20:

No studio versions yet but some of the sonnets will be on the next solo album which is due next Spring :)

Not quite true Sybilla, as Rufus originally set Sonnet 29 to music a few years ago for the fabulous CD "When Love Speaks".

It's well worth the money (and not just for Rufus) and is still available to buy or download.
