Rufus Wainwright has premiered the brand new single from his upcoming Best Of collection. Listen to 'Me And Liza' below.
Co-written with Guy Chambers and with an addictive bassline and confident swagger, 'Me And Liza leans on the poppier tones of his recent album Out Of The Game, along with older classics like 'April Fools' and 'California'.
The track is taken from Vibrate, which will be released on 3 March 2014 and will play homage to his impressive back catalogue since his self-title debut in 1998 featuring all of his best known tracks including his 'Hallelujah' cover version, 'The Art Teacher', 'Going To Town' and 'Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk'. On top of all that, there will be a 16 track bonus disc of live recordings of his best known as well as previously unreleased tracks recorded at Kenwood House in 2010.
