In a post on his newly revamped Web site, Elvis Costello confirmed his new album is named after the 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," he writes. The singer/songwriter also confirms that though the album will be available only as a double vinyl today, other mediums will follow. "You may prefer other, more portable, less scratchable, editions that will soon become available for your convenience," Costello says. "But this is how it sounds the best: with a needle in a groove, the way the Supreme Being intended it to be." Costello also gives an in-depth track-by-track on Momofuku, including stories behind collaborations with Roseanne Cash, Johnathan Rice and Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis.
