Elvis Costello Shares ‘Hetty O’Hara Confidential’

As he
tipped off
a month ago, Elvis Costello has
indeed shared another new song.

Titled “Hetty O’Hara Confidential,” a description of the
song reads as “the tale of a tattler who outlives her time.”
Fair enough

A few weeks ago, Costello shared “No Flag,” which was his
first new song in over a year. He trekkedto Finland in February
and worked for three days at Suomenlinnan Studio, a
recording facility a 20-minute ferry ride from downtown Helsinki.
This song is from those sessions, which Costello produced. “Hetty
O’Hara Confidential†was recorded and engineered by Eetü
Seppälä and mixed in Los Angeles by Sebastian Krys.

Earlier in the quarantine, Costello performed
an acoustic set
 from his home in Vancouver in order to raise
funds for UK healthcare support network Artists4NHS.
Following the death of singer/songwriter John
Prine
, Costello penned an essay in
tribute to Prine.

“These were songs that no one else was writing, filled with
details that only Prine’s eye or ear caught; the arcane radio,
the damaged and the destitute,†Costello wrote. “The songs were
filled with what sounded like sound advice from a friend in a
crowded bar or a voice in the margins, but never one that was
self-pitying or self-regarding.â€

Costello’s next song arrives on Aug. 14.
