Confidential’, Shop Ticket Snatchers

Elvis
Costello
has shared his second single of the year so far,
entitled ‘Hetty O’Hara Confidential’.

The track, with similarly furious synthetic percussion to
previous single ‘No Flag’, is described pithily by Costello in
a statement as “the tale of a tattler who outlives her
time”.

‘Hetty O’Hara Confidential’ is released with an animated
lyric video – stream it below:

The dual singles are the first new material since Elvis Costello
And The Imposters’ 2019 EP ‘Purse’. They released their last
studio album
‘Look Now’
in 2018.

Both of the latest singles were recorded over three days in
Helsinki, Finland at Suomenlinnan Studio. “I wanted to go
somewhere nobody knew me,” Costello said in a press release.
“So, this is ‘The Helsinki Sound’.”

Following John Prine’s death in April, Costello wrote
a lengthy, heartfelt tribute to the singer-songwriter
.
Herecalled how he “wanted to be John Prine†when he 19 years
old and “pretending to be a songwriterâ€.

Last year,
Costello was awarded an O.B.E
for “services to music†in
the Queen’s Birthday Honours List. “I am happy to accept this
very surprising honourâ€, Costello said at the time, adding: “To
be honest, I’m pretty tickled to receive this acknowledgement for
my ‘Services To Music’, as it confirms my long held suspicion
nobody really listens to the words in songs or the outcome might
have been somewhat different.â€
