Elvis Costello has released a new track titled ‘Hetty O’Hara Confidential’. It’s his second single of 2020, following ‘No Flag’, which dropped a few weeks ago in June. Listen to it below.
The track, engineered by Eetü Seppälä and mixed in Los Angeles by Sebastian Krys, is described by a press release as “the tale of a tattler who outlives her time”. Speaking of recording the two new singles at Suomenlinnan Studio in Helsinki, Finland, Costello said: “I wanted to go somewhere nobody knew me. So, this is ‘The Helsinki Sound’.”
‘No Flag’ and ‘Hetty O’Hara Confidential’ mark the first new material from Elvis Costello And The Imposters since 2019’s Purse EP. Their last full-length release was 2018’s Look Now. Costello’s next single is set to drop on August 14.
