Elvis Costello will release his autobiography Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink this October, and the rocker has announced that his memoir will be accompanied by a two-disc “soundtrack album” culled from Costello’s expansive catalog. Costello himself curated the 38-song collection, selecting tracks with the deepest emotional connection to the themes and stories from his tome, due out October 13th.

In addition to the mix of hits, collaborations and rarities, Unfaithful Music & Soundtrack Album will also boast a pair of unreleased tracks: “April 5th,” which Costello recorded with Rosanne Cash and Kris Kristofferson and “I Can’t Turn It Off,” an early recording that Costello – as D.P. Costello – recorded in 1975, two years before his debut My Aim Is True. The soundtrack album will also house three exclusive “audiobook sketches” and a 28-page booklet featuring lyrics and unseen photographs.
