Beyond Belief: A tribute to Elvis Costello ("Veronica")
2015 (English)Other (Other academic)Sound recording
David Myhr's own inimitable take on Elvis Costello’s 1989 classic “Veronica” is track #6 on the American compilation “Beyond Belief: A tribute to Elvis Costello“. Other contributors included Matthew Sweet, The Rubinoos and Mike Viola. The highly recommended compilation is out on Spyder Records and the proceedings goes to charity. The compilation is co-produced by producer, musician, author and reviewer John Borack and Olivia Frain who invited a series of groups and artists from all over the world (of the power pop genre) from whom they selected the 50 that finally made it on to the album. They later found a partner in record label Spyder Pop Records who took care of the release. 100% of the proceeds from the Spyderpop release will go to the Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation (founded by the late composer Michael Kamen) and help put musical instruments into the hands of children in underserved areas. This fundraising album is going towards a great cause and deserves to be in your personal music collection.“Veronica” was co-written with Paul McCartney and Myhr declares it his favourite Costello song in no small part influenced by his life-long obsession with The Beatles.Though “Veronica” was Costello’s most successful song in the US it has so far been covered by very few artists (this may be the first time that a cover version finds its way out onto Spotify).“Veronica”(Elvis Costello / Paul McCartney)David Myhr – lead and background vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, harpsichord, glockenspielAndreas Dahlbäck – drums, tambourineRikard Lidhamn – bassMarcus Olsson – piano, organAnders Pettersson – electric guitarElin Andersson – trumpetProduced by David MyhrEngineered by Raoul Hamilton, Petter Näse, and David Myhr.
