Elvis Costello To Collaborate With Burt Bacharach And Much More

adorable...just adorable...

adorable…just adorable…

You cannot throw a rock without hitting Elvis Costello lately and its not cuz of his size.  Between the solo tours, The Roots album and tour you’d think the man would have enough on his plate, but nope.

Welcome back to the croony collab of Costello and Bacharach.  You may recall their Austin Powers offering of “I’l Never Fall In Love Again” (if you dont I have it posted below) what a great surprise that bit was!  Priceless really (and the adorable end of clip Costello smile kills me every time!)

But according to Elvis in an interview with Noise11 (why do they get to talk to him and not me?) The new project will bring to the stage the 1998 Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach collaboration ‘Painted From Memory’. ‘One is an adaptation for the stage of ‘Painted From Memory’ with new songs added and the other is development of another musical which will require even more new music. We are working at quite a speed. This has been a rocketship start to the year,’ he said.

AhHa! So that explains the never ending press.  Keep the name in the news!   But he goes on to say he’s not so big on albums but more interested in ‘projects’… interesting There is no need to make another one,’ he tells Noise11. ‘There might be a desire. It doesn’t have anything to do with me making my living. That’s not the same of opportunities to record presenting themselves. The large repertoire of songs I am working on are not by any means complete or will they imminently be heard but they exist. The songs I am working on with Burt Bacharach are not being prepared for recording. Initially they are being prepared for performance on stage and for a musical. The production will have to reach a certain degree of success before we would think about an original cast record where we would represent at on record. That might not even more as automatic as it used to be because as you know the business of making records has changed quite a lot. Before every little thing was recorded. Now, not so much’.

Oh Elvis you’re so hipster.
