    Rumer has it that Rumer wants to be a boy... at least on record.

    The singer has announced that she will release Boys Don't Cry on Sept. 25.

    The collection finds Rumer bringing her remarkable voice to a striking selection of songs penned and originally performed by some of the most iconic male songwriters of the 1970s. The album showcases stunning reinterpretations of classics by acts like Daryl Hall & John Oates alongside lesser-known works by such legendary tunesmiths as Todd Rundgren, Isaac Hayes, Ronnie Lane, Paul Williams, Stephen Bishop and Terry Reid.
