Elvis Costello Sets Tour, Plans New Album

Share This:

Eight years after his last full studio solo album, and 10 after his last with the Imposters, Elvis Costello will release a new album—his first for Concord Records. An announcement regarding the as-yet-untitled new release is “imminent,” according to a post on Costello’s website.

In the meantime, Costello and the Imposters will launch a 20-city North American tour in November. The run begins Nov. 2 in Bethlehem, Penn., and continues through Dec. 4, when it winds up in Vancouver, B.C. The title of the tour is “Look Now and Then…It’s Elvis Costello & The Imposters.”

Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 22, and fans can opt for an offer to buy both concert tickets and pre-order the new album for one price (in select markets).

Costello’s last album under his own name was 2010’s National Ransom, for the Hear Music/Universal label. That was preceded in 2008 by Momofuku, with the Imposters, for the Lost Highway label. In 2013, Costello teamed with the Roots to release Wise Up Ghost for Blue Note Records.

The title of the new tour bears some similarity to that of Costello’s Las Vegas run of 2017, which was called “Now/Not Now.”
