Elvis Costello’s incredible career has produced 32 studio albums and a whopping 62 single repertoire. It’s actually not an overstatement to say that Costello is one of the greatest songwriters of quality music of the 20th century. Although he’s well into his 60s, he remains a prolific performer and continues to pack venues across the world. Costello, a staggering solo artist, has developed partnerships with his backing bands. After debuting his career-defining debut album, My Aim is True, in 1977, Costello began working with the Attractions for the remainder of his studio efforts until the mid-'90s. His time with the Attractions has resulted in ten chart-performing albums with rich legacies, including Armed Forces, This Year’s Model, and Get Happy!!
By the ‘80s, Costello remains at the top of the new wave/punk rock food chain with hits like “Good Year for the Roses,” “From Head to Toe,” and “Everyday I Write the Book.” In 1989, Costello began working solo again with critically-acclaimed releases Spike and Might Like A Rose. The two studio albums peaked at number 5 on the U.K. charts and performed moderately well on the U.S. charts. The remainder of his ‘90s also includes collaborative efforts with Richard Harvey, The Brodsky Quartet, Burt Bacharach, and another album with The Attractions.
In 2003, the U.K. quintessential punk rock star tried his hand at jazz and released the intimate album North. The record was categorized under classical music and jazz. It also marked the first time Costello topped Billboard’s Top Jazz Albums chart. The album is one of Costello’s most personal efforts, as the songs revolved around his divorce and budding relationship with his new love interest. The same year, Costello was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Elton John.
The following year, Costello released his first album with The Imposters. The Delivery Man, which was a concept album dedicated to Johnny Cash, performed phenomenally on the charts in eight countries, including the U.S. and the U.K. He would work with The Imposters again in 2008 for the album Momofuku and in 2018 for the Grammy Award-winning album, Look Now. This 2023, Costello is promoting his latest album with The Imposters. The Boy Named If debuted in early 2022 and spawned the highly-regarded single “Magnificent Hurt.”
