Elvis Costello to release cover of Squeeze’s ‘Someone Else’s Heart’ for Record Store Day

Elvis Costello will release a 7-inch single on Record Store Day featuring a cover of Squeeze’s “Someone Else’s Heart” — off 1981’s East Side Story, which he co-produced — that was recorded in 2011 with members and associates of hip-hop collective The Roots.

The single, to be released by Yep Roc in the U.S. and the U.K. next month, features Costello teaming up with ?uestlove, Kirk Douglas, Owen Biddle, Ray Angry and Frank Knuckles. It was the first collaboration between Costello and The Roots’ ?uestlove, and would lead to the 2013 album Wise Up Ghost.

The 45 rpm single is limited to 4,000 copies worldwide, and includes the previously unreleased Squeeze cover on Side A and an instrumental version on Side B.

The 11th annual Record Store Day falls on April 21 this year; visit the U.S. Record Store Day and U.K. Record Store Day websites for full lists of releases and participating indie retailers.
