Description
“By now, some of you may have heard rumor of an album called "Momofuku" and wonder what this record is... Well, the real version is pressed on two pieces of black plastic with a hole in the middle. You may prefer other, more portable, less scratchable, editions but this is how it sounds the best: with a needle in a groove, the way the Supreme Being intended it to be!” 

– Elvis Costello 

Elvis Costello's new solo studio album Momofuku is at this point to be released on Vinyl only, with a digital download code included. The new Lost Highway release follows 2004's The Delivery Man, Costello's debut on the label with his band the Imposters. Since then, Costello recorded The River in Reverse with pianist Allen Toussaint and supervised the first wave of his back-catalog reissues through Universal.

"The absence of much advance notice or information might seem a little strange and perverse but the record was made so quickly that I didn't even tell myself about it for a couple weeks. So, what can I tell you about "Momofuku"?”

"Well, obviously the title is a tribute to Momofuku Ando, the inventor of the Cup Noodle. Like so many things in this world of wonders, all we had to do to make this record was add water. Now, I understand that there is also a fancy eatery in New York City that has made the same connection with Ando-San. So, just in case anybody is inclined to mistake our record for something edible, we've added a disclaimer to the record jacket. I like saying, "record jacket" again.”

"For those who like to know these things, we recorded exclusively to tape, completing and mixing each song before moving on to the next. The entire record took a week to record and mix. The music has been pressed on four sides of vinyl for volume and clarity although the album was originally sequenced with six tracks a-side. Every record has its own method. This was the one for these songs.”
– Elvis Costello
