Elvis Costello to spin a Bruce Springsteen set on Sirius XM Radio: We've got his playlist
Elvis Costello will take over Sirius XM’s all-Springsteen, all-the-time E Street Radio station next Friday to spin a few of his favorite Boss-related tunes. A rep for the satellite radio service has provided the Music Mix with a list of the songs the seasoned singer-songwriter chose, and it’s a nice little selection. Check it out after the jump: You’ve got a few early-to-mid-era Springsteen classics; Costello covering Springsteen’s “Brilliant Disguise” (hear it below); a song from Springsteen spouse and backup singer Patti Scialfa‘s most recent solo album; and a live cover of Jackie Wilson’s “(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher” from the E Street Band’s Nov. 7 concert in NYC, where they were joined on stage by Costello.
The guest DJ set will air at 4 P.M. EST on Sirius XM’s E Street Radio next Friday, Dec. 11. If that’s not enough crossover for you, start getting excited for Springsteen’s upcoming appearances on Costello’s Sundance Channel interview/performance series Spectacle, airing Jan. 20 and 27. I attended the taping of those shows earlier this fall, and fans of either artist are in for a special treat — more on that soon. Will you be tuning in to either or both?
