"Someone Else's Heart" - EC single for Record Store Day

Postby And No Coffee Table » Mon Mar 05, 2018 11:05 am

Record Store Day 2018 Preliminary List includes:

Elvis Costello – Someone Else’s Heart – Yep Roc Records 7″ – 2600

It was reported in 2013 that EC had recorded the Squeeze song of that name with Steven Mandel and the Roots, so this is presumably that recording and not the first release from EC's recent sessions. But could Yep Roc be releasing the new album?

Record Store Day is April 21.

I'd like to hear more tracks from that proposed Squeeze tribute album.

I sort-of 'get' the vinyl fetish and feel the remorse over the loss of record stores, but these releases simply mean that, after 41 years of listening, songs keep getting released in ways that i can't ever access.

On one of the EC-devoted Facebook pages there's a photo of Davey and his brother with EC, taken this week, at a recording studio in LA. Davey's brother says he's there to assist on the recording of EC's "new album."

Anyone know anything about this? Would be terrific news!

More than three decades after producing Squeeze's album East Side Story, Elvis Costello teamed up with ?uestlove, Kirk Douglas, Owen Biddle, Ray Angry, and Frank Knuckles to cover "Someone Else's Heart" from the album for this limited edition 45 single! This version of “Someone Else’s Heart” was recorded in 2011 and marked the first time that Elvis and ?uestlove collaborated, igniting the spark that led to 2013’s Wise Up Ghost.

"Someone Else's Heart"/"Someone Else's Heart (Instrumental)"

So, how exactly does this release 'support indie record stores' if it is in a format that many can't play [correction, maybe just me], and there is a limited number? I guess it reminds me that record store day is near, but there are no record stores near.

I presume the ref to Kirk Douglas is a characteristic Elvis red herring!!!

It's (probably) the Kirk Douglas who plays guitar for the Roots, not the one from Spartacus.

Cool. Great song. East Side Story is one of my all time favorite albums.

Steven Mandel on Instagram:

Soooo pleased to announce the upcoming release of this little 45 record which encompasses so many of my influences, past and present. This is the first song to be available from an album I made over the last 12 years! (An album of 20 songs by the legendary band #Squeeze, interpreted by all different artists). The song on this 45 is Someone Else’s Heart as performed by my dude, #ElvisCostello joined by @questlove @rayangry @kirklloyd and @owenbiddle among others. This recording marked the first time Elvis and Questlove collaborated in the studio as well as the first time I was privileged enough to record Elvis’s vocals. Thank you to the very good people at @yeproc for believing in my project and for doing such a fine job with our first release. We hope to continue releasing singles like this until the entire album is available. Artwork by @_lawrencemcgarvey More on the history of this song and this project as we approach #RSD2018 #RecordStoreDay #Swindles

Squeeze! Elvis + Squeeze / Squeeze + Elvis.. Either way... The best. Would love to see a tour with both bands + Nick Lowe.

I saw Chris Difford doing a enjoyable solo show last week here in Dublin. Part of the show was a onstage interview about his recent memoir. Afterwards , while selling and signing copies of the book, Dr J (one time regular poster here) asked Chris what he thought of Elvis releasing this recording. It was the first Chris had heard of it. During the interview Chris had told of how he and Glenn Tilbrook and other members of Squeeze had signed their first record contract without really reading it . As a result they now get nothing from anything they wrote or recorded before 1992. That , of course, includes this song.

Can anyone remind me which singles EC has so far released for Record Store Day? Can't seem to find a list anywhere online. I don't mean just this year, but in preceding years.

So is this a good cover version? I don't have a record player, so haven't bought it.

As far as I can remember, only National Ransack, the Hollywood High EP & Wise Up: Thought were RSD releases. But I may be forgetting one or two.
