Loudon Wainwright III has unveiled his new album, I’d Rather Lead A Band (October 9/Thirty Tigers).  A collaboration with Vince Giordano and his band The Nighthawks, and producer and music supervisor Randall Poster, the 14-song collection is a loose, fresh, and “anti-nostalgic” take on classic songs from the 1920s and ‘30s featuring Wainwright as singer and band leader.   

For the past fifty years, Wainwright has carved out a distinguished career as one America’s most original singer-songwriters. Along the way he has released more than twenty albums, won a GRAMMY, acted in film and TV, and has had his songs recorded by artists including Johnny Cash, Mose Allison, Bonnie Raitt, and his own son, Rufus Wainwright. 

Vince Giordano is a GRAMMY-winning bandleader and multi-instrumentalist, whose recent film and TV credits include The Irishman and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Randall Poster is a music supervisor and producer who has worked on all of Wes Anderson’s films, with directors Todd Phillips, Sam Mendes, Martin Scorsese, on HBO’s Vinyl and much more.
