Elvis Costello is releasing a new album and a documentary.
The record is called “Spanish Model” and it is a new take on “This Year’s Model,” his first album with The Attractions. The project added new Spanish language vocals over the original backing tracks, with a variety of Latin pop and rock artists.
Costello also commissioned filmmaker Jose Tillan to record a “Spanish Model” documentary shorts series. In a new interview he said, “I love the humour and heart that Jose has caught in this film. It’s been great to hear all these voices and see the faces of our new friends. The whole gang’s here. One last time with feeling.”
