Fancy a boogie woogie?

Ever since Mark Ronson propelled Amy Winehouse into the pop orbit with his zeitgeist horns everyone with as much as a plectrum wants their new album to be produced by him.

The latest musician set to get the ‘Ronson treatment’ is Canadian warbler Rufus Wainwright, and talking to Rolling Stone, he’s shed some light on the experience. ‘We've been in for three days, and I already look 20 years younger,’ he told the magazine. ’I have to start looking around for motorcycle outfits or something, I feel so damn cool. I just want to make something that you love, driving around in your car listening or losing your mind to on a dance floor. Something to serenade us through these very, very troubling times.’

Rufus Wainwright is set to play a five night residency at London's Royal Opera House in July. His new album is expected to be released in 2012.

Move over Kate and Wills!
