Click to listen to La Santa Cecilia featuring Elvis Costello's 'Losing Game'

Los Angeles quartet La Santa Cecilia this week release their major label debut Treinta Días, a record that finds the former buskers teaming up with none other than Elvis Costello. This isn't the first time Costello has worked with La Santa Cecilia frontwoman La Marisoul – the two teamed up for "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" during a concert last year – but now you can take an exclusive first listen to their new collaboration "Losing Game." The sultry lost-love lament simmers with piano and a winding accordion, the perfect foundation for the excellent pairing of Costello's husky, wavering voice and La Marisoul's enchanting, unfettered bellow. Treinta Días comes out tomorrow, April 3oth, on Universal.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
