Elvis Costello And The Imposters have announced a tour of the UK and Ireland which is set to take place over the course of this summer. Costello has also just released a new song which incorporates Johnny Cash’s poetry into song (listen below).
A total of 10 shows have been scheduled which kicks off at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall on June 15 and will finish up with a performance at Manchester’s Sounds Of The City 2018 at Castlefield Bowl on July 6. Costello and The Imposters will play The Bord Gáis Theatre, Dublin on June 23rd.
The group released the song You Shouldn’t Look At Me That Way last year which was written for the movie Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool (2017). They’re also presently working on a new studio album, which is due for release later this year.
Meanwhile, Costello has released his track from Johnny Cash’s forthcoming album Forever Words. The album sees artists set Cash’s words and poetry to music.
