Rufus Wainwright has revealed that he is recording a new album with producer Mark Ronson.
The singer, who has spent recent years working on the opera Prima Donna, has said he wanted to make the record “danceable”.
"I just want to make something that you love, driving around in your car listening or losing your mind to on a dance floor,” he told Rolling Stone.
“Something to serenade us through these very, very troubling times."
Gigwise understands that former Razorlight drummer and I Am Arrows star Andy Burrows has also been involved in the album sessions.
As previously reported on Gigwise, Wainwright is due to play a series of shows at London’s Royal Opera House in July.
