Elvis Costello to Release a "Soundtrack" For His Upcoming Memoir

Elvis Costello has put together a new 2-CD set that he says is a soundtrack to his upcoming memoir.

Unfaithful Music & Soundtrack Album, which will be out on October 9 via UMe, sees Costello choose songs that offer the deepest emotional connection to the themes and stories in his book. The memoir, Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink, will be out four days later via Blue Rider Press/Penguin Random House.

The set includes both hits and rarities including two previously-unreleased titles: April 5th - written and recorded with Rosanne Cash, Kris Kristofferson and John Leventhal - and one of Costello's earliest solo recordings, I Can't Turn It Off, from 1975.

The collection also features three exclusive "audio book sketches" - that do not appear in the published memoir - and a 28-page booklet providing the complete lyrics and many unseen photographs, several of them from the MacManus family album.
