ElvisCostello.com has announced the premiere of “Spectacle: Elvis Costello with…”, a talk show/performance show hosted by musician Elvis Costello. James Taylor’s episode was taped back in September, and will air on the Sundance Channel on December 24 at 9:00 PM.
These guest artists will not only talk, but perform — demonstrating the development and creation of their music and playing new, stripped-down, or solo versions of some of their best and most loved songs. Costello also performs, starting each episode with an original, never before seen (or heard) interpretation of a song by the featured guest, or a song connected to them. And on top of all that are extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime collaborations and pairings.
