VOICES Notes and news on Pop & Rock releases
04 NOV 10 DAVID VIENNA
Elvis Costello appears on Comedy Central's The Colbert Report tonight performing "A Slow Drag With Josephine," from his new release National Ransom, and a duet with Stephen Colbert on the Everly Brothers’ classic "Dreams." Tune in at 11:30 p.m. / 10:30 p.m. CST. This is not the first time Costello and Colbert worked together. The legendary songwriter has appeared on the show before and in the host's holiday special A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift Of All. It's always a treat when Colbert duets with a musical guest. He's like a conservative Garrison Keillor, but with more hair styling products.
Like Costello's previous release Secret, Profane And Sugarcane, this release was produced by T Bone Burnett. Check out an overview of the the collection here. It's also available on vinyl.
