Title: National Ransom
Author: Elvis Costello
Coming to Meijer Gardens June 27.
On National Ransom Elvis Costello once again teams up with Grammy award winning producer T Bone Burnett and engineer Michael Pierante. Recorded in eleven days between Los Angeles and Nashville, Elvis is joined by all the members of the Imposters and Sugarcanes along with special guests Vince Gill, Marc Ribot, Buddy Miller and Leon Russell. All of these songs are newly composed by Costello with the exception of “I Lost You,” co-written with Jim Lauderdale and “All These Strangers,” for which Costello and T Bone Burnett collaborated on the lyrics. Costello and Burnett also provide the lyrics for “My Lovely Jezebel,” a Leon Russell rock and roll tune.
