Elvis Costello Releases Artistic New Lyric Video for 'Under Lime': Watch
Elvis Costello is gearing up for the release of his forthcoming album, Look Now, and on Wednesday (Aug. 22) delivered a colorful new lyric video for his recent single, "Under Lime."
The clip is a photomontage of paintings and homages to his Imposters: keyboardist Steve Nieve, bassist Davey Faragher and drummer Pete Thomas. The accompanying tune is a follow up on the continuing tale of Jimmie, off Costello's 2010 hit "Jimmie Standing In the Rain." In "Under Lime," Jimmie is faced with upcoming humiliation as he prepared to be a mystery guest on a 1950s game show.
"This seedy and desperate vaudevillian is thrown into the company of a young woman with a clipboard, a production assistant, charged with keeping him off the sauce, while staying out of his clutches. It’s a tale as old as time and as new as yesterday’s papers," Costello said in a statement.
Look Now, Costello and the Imposters' first album in a decade, is out October 12. Watch the "Under Lime" clip below.
