Elvis Costello debuts new song “The Last Year of My Youth” on Letterman

Consequence of Sound Staff


11 years ago, Elvis Costello became the first and only musician to host an episode of the Late Show, filling in for David Letterman as he recovered from an eye infection. Last night, the legendary songwriter once again did his friend a solid, serving as musical guest in place of Lana Del Rey, who cancelled her musical appearance last minute. Even at such short notice, the English rocker came bearing a special surprise: the debut of his new song “The Last Year of My Youth”. Catch the replay below.

According to a statement, “Costello wrote the song the night before his solo performance, and it echoes the theme for his upcoming headline debut at Carnegie Hall on June 24th and 25th. The two-night run at Carnegie Hall is part of a national solo tour that kicks off on Monday and features a different set list that Costello builds every night based on the city and venue.”
