Elvis Costello – Song With Rose

(click song title above to listen)

Between last breaths and first regrets
The days dragged on like cigarettes
In the distance martyrs and martinets
Dally, dancing with the empty silhouettes of threats

Over the years Rosanne Cash has written a few songs with her longtime pal Elvis Costello, and today we’re proud to bring you the aptly titled “Song With Rose” – a centerpiece from Costello’s 2008 release Momufuku. It’s not the only time the two worked together – in fact they actually cut a couple of tracks with mutual pal Kris Kristofferson including “April 5th” from the companion album to Costello’s 2015 biography, Unfaithful Music.

If you ask us, these two share a lyrical DNA and are natural collaborators, and any pairing of the duo is always welcome. Joining Costello on the track are his band the Impostors (Pete Thomas, Steve Nieve and Davey Faragher), along with guests Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley), Johnathan Rice, “Farmer” Dave Scher, and Jonathan Wilson.

Sam Phillips – Lying

(click song title above to listen)

It was this week back in 2011 when Sam Phillips gifted us with a collection of songs from her stunning year-long subscription series The Long Play. Capping off a particularly fertile period of creativity to her fans, Solid State highlighted 13 of 42 songs she released over the course of five EPs and a full-length album.

This week’s tune is one of our faves of the collection, a stripped down version of “Lying” Sam originally recorded for her 1991 album, Cruel Inventions (and featured Elvis Costello on guitar!).

On Solid State “Phillips makes every word count…doling out images with precision. She sings about compromises, frailty, coping mechanisms, and tiny flaws that define a life. Phillips sounds like she’s rejuvenated – and never better.” – Greg Kot – Chicago Tribune.

Rosanne Cash, Elvis Costello, Kris Kristofferson – April 5th

(click song title above to listen)

You want love
But it’s never deep enough
You want life
But it’s never long enough
You want peace
Like it’s something you can buy
You want time
But you’re content to watch it fly

“A few years ago, Kris Kristofferson, Rosanne Cash, and I formed our supergroup, C.C.K. – which sounds like a former Soviet republic – or K.C.C., which might be a knock-off of a fast food chain. We wrote and recorded a couple songs for a still unfinished album”, Costello told Rolling Stone. “One of them, ‘April 5th’, was written and produced by Rose’s husband, John Leventhal and is as good as any song on which my name is signed.”

Whatever the inspiration to combine these absurdly talented voices & souls, it was a grand one! Thankfully, this week’s Top Tune got it’s first commercial release last week on an amazing two-disc, 38-song companion album to Elvis Costello‘s new autobiography, Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink. The collection also features a second previously unreleased track, “I Can’t Turn It Off”, an early recording that Elvis recorded in 1975 two years before his debut, My Aim Is True.

You can catch Costello in conversation with Rosanne Cash next Tuesday November 10th 7:30PM at the Peter Jay Sharp Building/BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn. Get tickets and more info HERE.
