Elvis Costello and The Imposters‘ new song, “Farewell, OK,” is out today. Listen HERE.
“Like a lot of good rock and roll songs this began with a drummer down in a basement and a singer howling outside the backdoor”, Costello tell us, adding “It’s a blurred gaze, a drink too much, an accidental punch and a kiss goodnight all in the tumult of a dancehall”
“Farewell, OK” is the third song to be released from ‘The Boy Named If,’ out January 14th, 2022, the new album of bright melodies, guitar solos that sting and a quick step to the rhythm. An early review said: “Sublimely crafted, incredibly well-played … the intelligence, urgency and immediacy of [The Boy Named If] are a most welcome surprise.” (Record Collector).
The record will be released on EMI, with Capitol Records as the release partner in the U.S.
Elvis will return to the UK in June 2022 with The Imposters (Steve Nieve – keyboards; Pete Thomas – drums; Davey Faragher – bass & backing vocals) along with Charlie Sexton for an extensive UK run of dates.
