Call Oliver's Army! Elvis Costello is shunning the CD and favouring the vinyl/digital download method

elvis-costello.jpgCor, speaking of craggy musicians with plentiful ear hair, Elvis Costello hasn’t gone quite as far as Billy Corgan with his next musical release, but his announcement regarding Momofuku is still a lot more radical than his conforming peers’ business models.

His first album since 2004 will be released only on vinyl, ignoring the popular yet slightly defunct CD format, and will contain a code which’ll allow for a digital download of the album.

The large round piece of plastic will be in shops on the 22nd of April, but what’s the bet it’ll turn up on The Pirate Bay in the coming weeks?
