Rufus’ brand-new album, Out Of The Game, is drawing rave reviews from the press. Rolling Stone proclaims that this is “the Great American Pop Album”, while Paste gives the record 9 out of 10 and labels Rufus “the chanteuse with the steady aim on broken hearts and sumptuous agony.” The LA Times declares it to be one of Rufus’ “catchiest and most immediately accessible albums”, while Toronto’s Now Magazine awards a perfect score and calls it “a remarkably inspired move”.
There’s high praise coming from across the Atlantic as well: The Guardian’s four-star review says the songs “throb with newfound wonder,” while the BBC, discussing the song “Candles” (a tribute to Rufus’ late mother Kate McGarrigle), sums it up nicely: “Much like Out Of The Game as a whole, it’s very special indeed."
Rufus has also recently done some interviews, sitting for in-depth discussions with the Globe and Mail, the Irish Times and Spinner.
Out Of The Game is available now.
