Re: Elvis in Les Studios Saint Germain, Paris, February 2020

If Elvis is recording in Paris, my guess would be that it is for one of Steve's projects (another album like Together (2013)?), or at least a track in which Steve is involved. Possbly a Record Store Day release in April?

Elvis was in Paris for Steve's birthday.

Re: New release based on one of Elvis Costello and the Attractions most celebrated albums!!
