Wainwright's Ode To Brandon Flowers

RUFUS WAINWRIGHT's new album features a track dedicated to THE KILLERS frontman BRANDON FLOWERS. The gay songwriter confesses he was left mesmerised by Flowers during their one and only meeting - and felt compelled to write Tulsa, on his new LP Release The Stars, about him. Wainwright says, "He is so sexy yet so unhappy and also somewhat sane and crazy at the same time. "I haven't met anyone who quite fits the Brando mould as much as he does immediately. There's this dark, moody, restless, annoyed by compassionate figure that's sucking up all the energy out of the room."
