Elvis Costello Unveils ‘Phonographic Memory’
The song is a B-side to 'We Are All Cowards Now'
A few weeks after revealing details for his upcoming album, Hey Clockface, Elvis Costello has shared another song…that isn’t on the album. On Friday, Costello unveiled “Phonographic Memory,” which serves as the B-side to the previously released “We Are All Cowards Now.”
According to a release, the song “imagines a post-war ceremony involving an archive recording of the voice of Orson Welles and someone identified only as, “President Swift.'”
Hey Clockface is out on Oct. 30 via Rounder Records.
