Conversations from the World Café

Elvis Costello

This past summer Elvis Costello cancelled a handful of tour dates so that he could recover from cancer surgery. In the same Facebook post where he delivered that news, there was a bright side. Costello announced that he would release a new album with his band, The Imposters, in the fall. Well, it's the fall, Elvis is in great health, and his new record, Look Now, is here. It features songs written with Carole King and Burt Bacharach. Elvis visits World Cafe to share insights about his health scare and his creative process, which includes telling stories from the perspective of female characters facing difficult situations like infidelity and unwanted pregnancy.
