Watch a Rufus Wainwright Video that Features Helena Bonham Carter
Rufus Wainwright released his new video for “Out of the Game,” the title track on his forthcoming album out May 1 on Decca Records. The video pokes fun at celebrity with the help of no other than Helena Bonham Carter, whose film credits range from Fight Club to a slew of Tim Burton movies. The actress stars as a miserable librarian that ends up (sort of) winning over Wainwright. You can check out the semi-NSFW video below.
Out of the Game was produced by Mark Ronson nd includes appearances from the Dap Kings, Wilco’s Nels Cline, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner and Sean Lennon. The album has been described as one of Wainwright’s most accessible.
