Reason #217 Why Elvis Costello Is Greatness

Elvis' Country Album!

Elvis' Country Album!

Elvis Costello is one of the biggest musical chameleons of all time. He has released jazz albums with Allain Toussaint, classical musical (“Il Sogno”), country albums (“The Delivery Man”), and rock albums (last year’s “Momofuku”). Some of his stuff can be hit or miss, but you can’t fault the guy for trying?

On Elvis’ official website, there is a post about his upcoming album, titled “Secret, Profane, and Sugarcane”. This is apparently a 100% country album and Elvis brought in his pal and super-producer T-Bone Burnett to collaborate on it. There are also appearances from Emmylou Harris and Loretta Lynn, which makes it about as country as you can get. Personally, I can’t wait for this one and it is due out on June 2nd.
