Elvis Costello & The Imposters' new song, "Farewell, OK," is out today (1/7). Listen here: https://elvis-costello.lnk.to/FarewellOK
"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 tells 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.
