3 new Bacharach/Costello songs on Elvis Costello album "Look Now"

The songs are "Don't Look Now," "Photographs Can Lie," and "He's Given Me Things."

Elvis recently told an audience in Belgium that Burt plays piano on two songs. I don't know if Elvis misspoke and it's really all three songs or if Burt plays on only two of the three. Either way, I think it's great news.

Me Japanese Boy,
Thanks for that info—can't wait 'til 12 Oct. to get my hands on this. It's been a long time coming but I'm sure it will be well worth the wait! Also as I scrolled down I noticed where Naked Eyes' 1983 debut album "Burning Bridges" will be re-issued on 31 Aug. /w B sides and an extended, Jelleybean Benitez remix of Bacharach/David's "(There's) Always Something There To Remind Me" and their non-Bacharach hit "Promises Promises" also given the extended remix treatment featuring Madonna. But I'm still wondering what happened to the Bacharach/Costello's Diana Krall project—that would certainly put the icing on the cake!

I thought that I recalled a post of this from a few years ago but had forgotten the title. It`s an execrable vocal performance and I hope he used Bacharach`s arrangement for the recording, but here it is:
