This video for Elvis Costello's new song, No Flag, is like a blast from the 1980s, and yet it's also tailor made for 2020.
From Rolling Stone:
Although he recorded the track in February, according to a statement, the song is fitting for the current frustrations plaguing the world. "No time for this kind of love/No flag waving high above," Costello sings. "No sign for the dark place that I live/No God for the damn that I don't give."
He recorded the track in three days in Helsinki, Finland at Suomenlinnan Studio, which is about a 20-minute ferry ride away from downtown. "I wanted to go somewhere nobody knew me," Costello said in a statement. "So, this is 'The Helsinki Sound.'"
