ELVIS COSTELLO: LOOK NOW

ELVIS COSTELLO: LOOK NOW

*Vinyl release date: October 19, 2018
*Deluxe CD and Deluxe LP versions also available

Recorded in Hollywood, New York City and Vancouver, British Columbia, Look Now is beautiful in its simplicity, reflective in its lyrical vision, surrounded by melodies and orchestrations that are nothing short of heavenly. It’s the first album Costello has made with the Imposters since the 2008 release of Momofuku and his first new album since the acclaimed 2013 The
Roots collaboration, Wise Up Ghost. Costello’s suspicion that it was time to return to the studio was confirmed while on the ‘Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers’ tour of the USA, last summer and he realized the power and sheer musicality of The Imposters had never really been fully captured on one record.

Look Now is an outstanding addition to his song catalogue. Most of the titles on the 12‐track standard or the 16‐song deluxe album were written solely by Elvis Costello although, “Don’t Look Now” and “Photographs Can Lie” were co‐written with Burt Bacharach, who makes a guest appearance, leading The Imposters from the piano for those two ballads. Another song to which Bacharach contributed, “He’s Given Me Things” features some of the best singing Elvis has ever recorded, while “Burnt Sugar Is So Bitter” was written with Carole King and closes with a serpentine horn line winding around Steve Nieve’s atmospheric keyboard parts.The album was co‐produced by Elvis and Sebastian Krys ‐ the Latin Grammy Producer of the Year for 2007 and 2015, whose love and understanding of music spans both hemispheres.
