Elvis Costello & The Imposters recently shared “Paint the Red Rose Blue,” a new song from their upcoming album The Boy Named If.
According to Costello, the song is “The account of someone who has long-courted theatrical darkness, only for its violence and cruelty to become all too real. In its wake, a bereft couple learn to love again, painting a melancholy blue over the red of romance.”
“Paint the Red Rose Blue” is the second song to be released from The Boy Named If.
He described it as an “album of urgent, immediate songs with bright melodies, guitar solos that sting and a quick step to the rhythm.”
The record will be released on January 14 on EMI, with Capitol Records as the release partner in the U.S.
Costello previously released the first song from the album, “Magnificent Hurt.”
