Elvis Costello To Release Acoustic Album In June... Still On Starbucks



Elvis Costello is returning to the acoustic country-roots sound of 1986's King of America, on his newest upcoming album Secret, Profane & Sugarcane, which will be released in early June. 

Costello went back to work with T Bone Burnett, whom he collaborated with on both Spike and King of America, to produce Sugarcane, which will be released on June 2, again on Hear Music (better known as Starbucks' record label). The two worked together, recording the new album at Nashville's Sound Emporium Studio over a three-day session, and according to Billboard the band for the project includes the likes of Bluegrass and country musicians Stuart Duncan on fiddle, Mike Compton on mandolin, and guest vocals from Emmylou Harris as well. 

Secret, Profane & Sugarcane will also be available on vinyl and will have two more songs, including a cover of Lou Reed's "Femme Fatale". Costello and "The Sugarcanes" band will be playing tour dates in support of the new album come the summer.
