TAS Rated 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sonics in the February 2019 Issue of The Absolute Sound!

2020 Grammy Award Winner:
• Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album: Look Now

Special Edition 45rpm 7" Color Vinyl 8-Disc Box Set!
Exclusive Artwork by "Eamon Singer"!

This special box set features 16 tracks on 8 colored vinyl 7" 45rpm singles from Elvis Costello's deluxe version of Look Now, his first studio album with The Imposters in ten years.

Look Now is beautiful in its simplicity, reflective in its lyrical vision, surrounded by melodies and orchestrations that are nothing short of heavenly. Costello says, "I knew if we could make an album with the scope of Imperial Bedroom and some of the beauty and emotion of Painted From Memory, we would really have something." Look Now is an outstanding 16-strong addition to his song catalogue. The album was co-produced by Elvis and Sebastian Krys - the Latin Grammy Producer of the Year for 2007 and 2015, whose love and understanding of music spans both hemispheres.

"The production - often bass heavy, and sometimes driven by pounding beats, fleeting piano riffs, and overdriven tremolo guitar - is reminiscent of 1982's masterwork Imperial Bedroom. Costello also has reunited with tunesmith Burt Bacharach on three piano ballads that are among the album's standouts. The acerbic "Burnt Sugar Is So Bitter", co-written with Carole King, features horns and woodwinds. Appropriately, he includes his "Unwanted Number" from the soundtrack to 1996's Grace of My Heart, a film inspired by King's experiences at the hit factory the Brill Building. "I Let the sun Go down" is an elegy for the British Empire, but the ever-defiant Costello shows no sign of surrender." - Greg Cahill, The Absolute Sound, February 2019

"Sharp, sophisticated...effortlessly tuneful...the kind of wry, well-observed pop classicism that's been the hallmark of his genius" - Rolling Stone

"Look Now is a triumph for Costello" - Pitchfork

"Elvis Costello's new album is his best this century and one of his best in decades" - Slate
