Elvis Costello & The Imposters return with a new album, ‘Look Now’

Elvis Costello & The Imposters (the latter being two-thirds of The Attractions: Steve Nieve, Pete Thomas and Davey Faragher on bass) have recorded a new album Look Now which will be released in October on Concord Music.

The album is Costello’s first since 2013’s Wise Up Ghost and the musician and songwriter had this to say about it: “I knew if we could make an album with the scope of ‘Imperial Bedroom’ and some of the beauty and emotion of ‘Painted From Memory’, we would really have something.

Painted From Memory is the sublime album Elvis Costello made with Burt Bacharach back in 1998 and two songs – Don’t Look Now and Photographs Can Lie – from the new album are co-written with the American songwriter (now 90), who also plays piano on both of those songs. Burnt Sugar Is So Bitter boasts another notable collaborator – it was written with Carole King.

Look Now was co-produced by Elvis and Sebastian Krys and while the standard album is 12 tracks, deluxe 2CD and 2LP vinyl editions add four bonus songs.

There are seemingly endless bundles and variations – including very expensive signed items – direct from Costello’s official store (all shipped from USA only) but the main CD and vinyl editions are covered below.

Look Now will be issued on 12 October 2018
