Elvis Costello & The Imposters have shared a new song, ‘Paint the Red Rose Blue’, which is taken from their upcoming album The Boy Named If. Check it out below.
According to Costello, the new 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.”
The Boy Named If will follow last year’s Hey Clockface. Previously, Costello shared the single ‘Magnificent Hurt’.
