Justin Bieber has one. So does Miley Cyrus, One Direction and Katy Perry.
Yet we’re still waiting for a documentary focusing on one of music’s greatest talents … Elvis Costello.
Showtime will right that wrong April 10 with “Elvis Costello: Mystery Dance.” The new documentary promises an exhaustive account of the British troubadour, who segued from an angry young man to a musical chameleon without peer.
Not only does Costello contribute a series of interviews to the film, fans will get exclusive, unreleased demos of songs written by Costello and Paul McCartney. The pair famously collaborated on a number of tracks through the years including “Veronica,” Costello’s highest charting song.
“Elvis Costello: Mystery Dance” bows at 9 p.m. EST April 10 on Showtime.
