Track: Elvis Costello – ‘Phonographic Memory’



After announcing his new album ‘Hey Clockface’ and new single ‘We are All Cowards Now’ via Concord Records. We get the surprise delivery of Elvis Costello’s new track ‘Phonographic Memory’, described as “the exclusive B-Side of the recently released, “We Are All Cowards Now”.

“Phonographic Memory” imagines a post-war ceremony involving an archive recording of the voice of Orson Welles and someone identified only as, “President Swift”. A Snappy flamenco flavoured acoustic provides a backing as the guitarist wanders the fretboard.
