Elvis Costello Video Premiere on Qwest TV on October 9


Elvis Costello and Michael Leonhart have recorded three songs in quarantine, the latest of which, titled “Shut Him Down,” is scheduled to premiere with an exclusive video on Quincy Jones’ Qwest TV on October 9th. The powerful song features rapper JSWISS and over 50 members of Leonhart’s orchestra, all having recorded the song remotely. 

“Shut Him Down” is also included in Costello’s “50 Songs For 50 Days” playlist, a-song-a-day rollout of 50 songs and couplets from his catalog leading up to and including Tuesday, 11/3 (Election Day). The video accompanying the song was directed by Daniel Carlson, and will be available for free on Qwest TV’s Facebook page and YouTube channel on October 9th.
