Elvis Costello & The Imposters released a new single, “Farewell, OK.” The song is set to land on Costello and company’s upcoming album, The Boy Named If, due out via Capitol Records / EMI on January 14.
Elvis Costello announced the new album, which he said carries the full title The Boy Named If (And Other Children’s Stories), in October and shared the lead single, “Magnificent Hurt.” The latest off the record is “Farewell, OK,” which the renowned singer-songwriter detailed in a press release:
“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 said. “It’s a blurred gaze, a drink too much, an accidental punch and a kiss goodnight all in the tumult of a dancehall.”
