Elvis Costello on Bringing Back Old Faces to New SongsOctober 30, 2018
This Friday on Kyle Meredith With …~ ATAGEND, Kyle chitchats with modern popping fiction Elvis Costello about his new recording, Look Now, which was secreted earlier this month to critical acclaim. Costello develops on the older forces that restrain this evidence to those of his past, namely the use that he and frequent traitor Burt Bacharach did in revisiting psalms originally intended as part of a stage show. The singer too dives into characters from past recordings that carry through to his latest work.
Kyle Meredith With … is an interrogation line in which WFPK’s Kyle Meredith speaks to a wide width of musicians. Each bout, Meredith mines deep into an artist’s work to find out how the music is made and where their expedition is going, from legendary craftsmen like Robert Plant, Paul McCartney, U2 and Bryan Ferry, to the newer class of The National, St. Vincent, Arctic Monkeys, Haim, and Father John Misty. Check back Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for brand-new bouts. Rate the serial now via iTunes.
