New Song by Emile Haynie featuring Rufus Wainwright "Little Ballerina" (Debut Album Out)

L.A. music producer Emile Haynie released a debut album this week that follows the long tradition of heartfelt creative output spurred on by a failed relationship. He enlisted quite a collection of collabos to bring his songs on We Fall (Interscope Records) to life: Brian Wilson, Andrew Wyatt of Miike Snow, Lykke Li, J. Spaceman of Spiritualized, Father John Misty, Nate Ruess of fun. and Lana Del Rey (Haynie produced her album Born to Die, along with others by Kanye West and Eninem, just to name a few). 

But it was "Little Ballerina" featuring Rufus Wainwright that caught my ear, instantly recognizing his warm vocals and wondering if I had missed something about a new collection from this favorite artist of mine. Haynie told GQ in a song-by-song breakdown that it was actually fellow super producer Mark Ronson who suggested Wainwright for the track, bringing a "loving, playful delivery." It's definitely found a place on my next playlist -- take a listen at the widget here.
