While I don’t get too excited for news of an upcoming new Elvis Costello album, I’d be lying if I said I was completely indifferent. For me, I miss the early years of Elvis Costello up through Trust (1981). Certainly, Elvis Costello is a master of change, and is loved by many for his ability to remain interesting though decades.
On October 30, the 31st studio set arrives from Elvis Costello with Hey Clockface. The new album contains 14 new songs and will be issued on CD, DD, and vinyl 2LP. The new album is heralded by the arrival of two singles, “We Are All Cowards Now”, and “Hetty O’Hara Confidential” (hear below). A collectible 2LP Sun Marble color vinyl set can be ordered via Elvis Costello website.
