Rufus Wainwright shares video for You Ain’t Big ahead of new album Unfollow The Rules

Rufus Wainwright

Rufus Wainwright has shared a video for You Ain’t Big in anticipation of the release of his new album Unfollow The Rules on July 10th.

“I originally wrote the song You Ain’t Big about the strange fact that in the music business worldwide until recently (our estimation has fallen considerably) no matter how well you’ve done anywhere else, if you couldn’t make it in the heartland of the US you weren’t really considered a true star,” he says. “Think Little Richard, Elvis, the Beatles and Julio Iglesias.”

“However, in releasing this song now which references states such as Alabama, North Carolina, Kansas (where I have had the pleasure of playing shows) and even New York and California, all troubled places during this tremendously turbulent time nationwide, the term “You Ain’t Big” has taken on additional meanings.”

Wainwright’s ninth studio album was produced by Mitchell Froom at various Los Angeles studios including Sound City, United Recording and EastWest.
