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.
