Elvis Costello reveals tracklist for ‘Pomp & Pout: The Universal Years’ compilation

Elvis Costello, 'Pomp & Pout: The Universal Years'

A few weeks ago, we posted an item about two new Elvis Costello projects on the horizon: a new compilation called Pomp & Pout: The Universal Years, due out June 29, and a brand-new studio album, American Ransom, expected Oct 5. This week, thanks to The Second Disc, we know more about the first album — namely its tracklist. While the 18-song disc features no previously unreleased material, it does nicely span the years between 1988’s Painted From Memory and 2008’s Momofuku.

    Some odd selections here. No “She”? Also could use more tracks from “Painted From Memory.”

  2. Rob Arrow

    Missing hits: “She,” “God Give Me Strength,” and “Tear Off Your Own Head.” Elvis’ choice.

  3. “God Give Me Strength” and “Tear Off Your Own Head” would’ve been far preferable to the two tracks from NORTH. Also “There’s a Story in Your Voice” would’ve been equally welcome.

    I suppose “She” should’ve been included since it was a hit single, but personally it doesn’t do anything for me.
