The Wonder Of You presents the iconic artist’s unmistakable voice and most dramatic original performances augmented with lush new orchestral accompaniment.

Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink is the long-awaited memoir from Elvis Costello, one of rock and roll's most iconic stars.
Born Declan Patrick MacManus, Elvis Costello was raised in London and Liverpool, grandson of a trumpet player on the White Star Line and son of a jazz musician who became a successful radio dance band vocalist. Costello went into the family business and had taken the popular music world by storm before he was twenty-four. Costello continues to add to one of the most intriguing and extensive songbooks of the day. His performances have taken him from a cardboard guitar in his front room to fronting a rock and roll band on your television screen and performing in the world's greatest concert halls in a wild variety of company.
Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink describes how Costello's career has somehow endured for almost four decades through a combination of dumb luck and animal cunning, even managing the occasional absurd episode of pop stardom. This memoir, written with the same inimitable touch as his lyrics, and including dozens of images from his personal archive, offers his unique view of his unlikely and sometimes comical rise to international success, with diversions through the previously undocumented emotional foundations of some of his best known songs and the hits of tomorrow. The book contains many stories and observations about his renowned co-writers and co-conspirators, though Costello also pauses along the way for considerations on the less appealing side of infamy.
Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink is destined to be a classic, idiosyncratic memoir of a singular man.

Waar het alles so verkeerd gegaan? Sy het haar voorgeneem om nie soos Ma koud en afsydig teenoor haar man te wees nie. Om te veg vir haar huwelik. Ma het in die huwelik gebly in liggaam maar haar gees was nie daar nie. Sy was nog heeltyd in liggaam en gees daar. Sy het alles gegee, altyd die vrede probeer bewaar, nooit die appelkar omgegooi nie. Hoekom is dit dan dat sy nie haar man kon hou nie? In hierdie aangrypende roman word pertinente vrae gevra: Waarom bly ons lojaal tot die mense vir wie ons lief is? Is daar 'n “reg” en “verkeerd” in verhoudings? Is dit onselfsugtig en groothartig om by 'n verslaafde te staan – of eerder pateties om nie jouself eerste te stel nie? Toe Elvis ophou sing is 'n boek wat 'n binnekyk gee in die lewe van alkoholisme gesien deur die familielede van die alkoholis. Meer spesifiek die kind van 'n alkoholis. Die boek beeld die progressiewe stadia van alkoholisme uit. Waar die alkoholis net as 'n sosiale drinker begin en opeindig as 'n aggressiewe dronkaard. Toe Elvis ophou sing ondersoek ook die effek, wat alkoholisme het, op die individu wat in so 'n huis grootword en later 'n huishouding van haar eie het. Hoe denkpatrone, gedragspatrone en keuses steeds gedryf word deur hierdie disfunksionele gesinsomstandighede waarin die volwassene as kind grootgeword het.

Morgan Neville directs this Oscar-winning documentary exploring the often neglected role of backing singers in rock and roll history. Through tracing the stories of enduring vocal support artists such as Darlene Love, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer and Tata Vega from the heyday of rock and roll to the present day, the film endeavours to bring to the fore musicians whose voices adorn many of the most famous songs in pop history yet remain largely unknown. With artists such as David Bowie, The Rolling Stones and Elvis Presley often employing African-Americans to provide their backing vocals, the film also highlights the importance of these singers as trailblazers for a more inclusive musical mainstream - though the individuals themselves never quite made it to centre-stage... The film won the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 2014.
