Elvis Costello & The Imposters have released another track, ‘Farewell”, which will appear on their forthcoming album “The Boy Named If”.

Elvis Costello and The Imposters new album “The Boy Named If”, features urgent, immediate songs with bright melodies, guitar solos that sting and a quick step to the rhythm.

Costello tell us, ”The full title of this record is ‘The Boy Named If (And Other Children’s Stories).’ ‘IF,’ is a nickname for your imaginary friend; your secret self, the one who knows everything you deny, the one you blame for the shattered crockery and the hearts you break, even your own.”

“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 explained in a statement about ‘Farewell, OK.” It’s a blurred gaze, a drink too much, an accidental punch and a kiss goodnight all in the tumult of a dancehall.”

Produced by Sebastian Krys and Elvis Costello – the album is a collection of thirteen snapshots, “That take us from the last days of a bewildered boyhood to that mortifying moment when you are told to stop acting like a child – which for most men (and perhaps a few gals too) can be any time in the next fifty years,” as Costello put it.

“The Boy Named If” is due to arrive on January 14th. It includes the previously unveiled songs ‘Paint the Red Rose Blue’ and ‘Magnificent Hurt’.
