Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright presents TAKE ALL MY LOVES, a collection of his own compositions to beloved sonnets by the most performed playwright in the world, William Shakespeare. Wainwright is joined on this album by Florence Welch (Florence + the Machine), teams up with his sister, Martha Wainwright, and has enlisted soprano Anna Prohaska for a number of tracks.

Collaborating with Marius De Vries (who produced the Want albums more than a decade ago), Wainwright enlisted an assortment of singers and actors to perform these 16 tracks, many of which pair rich orchestral pieces with dramatic readings by the likes of Helena Bonham Carter, Carrie Fisher and even William Shatner.

Backed in spots by the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Rufus Wainwright and his many guests pile on the gravitas while still transforming and illuminating Shakespeare's material with playful and provocative spirits.
