For his new album, Hey Clockface, Elvis Costello first travelled to Helsinki, Finland to record a few songs playing all of the instruments himself. Then, he went to Paris to lay down another set of songs with a group of musicians, including longtime collaborator and keyboard player, Steve Nieve. The result is a record with two very distinct moods. Elvis shares all about it in an interview with host Raina Douris today, and they’ll dig into his lyrics, both new and old. Coming up, on the next World Cafe.
