In a career that has spanned more than 30 years, Elvis Costello has distinguished himself as one of pop music’s most prolific and versatile musicians. His latest work, Secret, Profane & Sugarcane, produced by T Bone Burnett (Raising Sand, O Brother Where Art Thou?), is an all-new CD recorded during a three-day session at Nashville’s Sound Emporium Studio.
These are the first Costello compositions to be predominantly rooted in acoustic music since his 1986 album King Of America, which was also produced by T Bone Burnett. Secret features some of the most highly regarded musicians in American roots music, including Jerry Douglas (dobro), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Mike Compton (mandolin), Jeff Taylor (accordion), and Dennis Crouch (double bass). The album also features harmony vocals by Jim Lauderdale, as well as Emmylou Harris on "The Crooked Line." From the Label
