    Written by Rufus Wainwright, produced by Rufus (with Pierre Marchand on three songs) and mixed by Marchand, who produced Poses, this 12-track record is steeped in beauty. It is a hugely personal album for Rufus and deeply emotional, channelled through Rufus fingers, his voice and a piano. The album title All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu is both a reference to Shakespeare's Sonnet 43 and Rufus own concept of Lulu , which he describes as a "dark, brooding, dangerous woman that lives within all of us." Lulu is Louise Brooks who starred in the film,'Pandora's Box.' Rufus admits that recording All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu was one of the most difficult things he has ever done. After hiding behind a 70-piece orchestra with my opera you can blame everything on the tuba player. With this album when the curtain is raised it s me on my own, says Rufus. Strapped with a resounding emotional heft, the intense 12-track record opens in arresting fashion with Who Are You New York , Rufus ode to the city and his most positive America song. Les Feux D Artifice T Appellant , which is the final aria from Rufus debut opera Prima Donna is another highlight. Zebulon, a song about one of Rufus high school sweethearts will be familiar to fans who have seen his recent concerts, is a majestic performance. Also featured are three Shakespeare sonnets, which Rufus has gorgeously crafted in his very own inimitable style. They are selected from 24 pieces of music that Rufus wrote for a theatrical production directed by Robert Wilson in Berlin last year. $12.99
