Recorded in Helsinki, Paris and New York, Hey Clockface is the latest Elvis Costello and Sebastian Krys Production, following their collaboration on Elvis Costello and The Imposters Grammy-winning album Look Now. Hey Clockface also features contributions from Bill Frisell, Nels Cline and longtime bandmate Steve Nieve.
"I sang live on the studio floor, directing from the vocal booth," Costello said of the new album in a press release. "We cut nine songs in two days. We spoke very little. Almost everything the musicians played was a spontaneous response to the song I was singing. I'd had a dream of recording in Paris like this, one day."
"I wanted the record to be vivid, whether the songs demanded playing that was loud and jagged or intimate and beautiful," Costello said of the project's emotional and dynamic range.
