Elvis Costello is releasing a brand new album next month to coincide with the release of his upcoming memoir. The singer has said the new 2-CD set is a soundtrack to the book.
Unfaithful Music & Soundtrack, the album, will be available on October 9th via Universal Records. Costello chose songs for the 38-song album that offered the deepest emotional connection to the themes and stories in his book.
Elvis’s memoir, Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink, will follow the album release four days later and will be distributed via Blue Rider Press/Penguin Random House.
The 2-CD set will include some classic hits and also a few rarities including one of Costello’s earliest (and never released) solo recordings: “I Can’t Turn It Off” from 1975. Another rarity on the album is “April 5th”— written and recorded with Rosanne Cash, Kris Kristofferson and John Leventhal.
The album will also feature three exclusive “audiobook sketches”—these, plus a 28-page booklet, the complete lyrics, and many unseen photographs make the CD a must have for Elvis fans.
The RMW team got the low down on the track listing for the album. We’re pumped to say the least.
