Artist MentionedElvis Costello & The Attractions Score First Entry on a Billboard Latin Albums Chart With ‘Spanish Model’“[The songs] take us from the last days of a bewildered boyhood to that mortifying moment when you are told to stop acting like a child - which for most men (and perhaps a few gals too) can be any time in the next fifty years," Costello said, adding that the lyrics harken back to a more innocent period of life.

“Once upon a time, when I didn’t know what a kiss could do and didn’t even dare to caress, the way ahead was a mystery; a departing from that magic state called innocence for the pain that leads to pleasure and all that jazz," he said."Don’t get me started about the guilt and shame and all those other useless possessions that you must throw overboard before you set sail with your dreamboat (and a runcible spoon)."

During the pandemic, Costello released the albumHey ClockfaceLa Face de Pendule à Coucou,as well as the comedic Audible"Words & Music" project How To Play Guitar & Y as well as overseeing the vinyl box-set edition of his 1979

The Boy Named If are records that are happening right now and if you want to draw a line between them, go right ahead. Sometimes I sit and write things down, the rest of the time I play guitar in a rock and roll band. I love my family. I really love everybody, especially the people I can’t stand, even those who trespass against us and there are a lot of them.”
