Since the late ’70s, Elvis Costello has zig-zagged around the spectrum of music with 24 album releases. And he’s done it with The Attractions, The Costello Show, The Brodsky Quartet, The Roots, The Imposters, and with collaborative and solo efforts. Throughout it all, he has remained fairly relevant with rousing and interesting compositions. After The Attractions, his most fueled efforts have been with The Imposters, of which he has created three albums with. It’s time for another.
On January 14, a new Elvis Costello & The Imposters album will be released. Titled The Boy Named If, the new album will contain 13 new songs.
The Boy Named If will release on CD, DD, CS, and 2LP packages. A Limited Edition 88-page hardback storybook edition is being made available.
A track from the album – “Magnificent Hurt” can be heard below.
