We continue our chat with one of the world’s finest songwriters, Nick Lowe, discussing peace, love, understanding, maturing, and staying young.
Nick Lowe is a true legend of British pop and rock, breaking out with Rockpile in the late ’70s, producing Elvis Costello’s first five albums, and writing some timeless tunes.
He’s back with a new album, The Old Magic, and he talks about his new clip featuring cult comedians and alternative music stars, songwriting maturing with age and hearing his songs evolve, rewriting his heroes’ work, and a thorough examination of one of his most famous songs ‘(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding’.
