Published Nov 10, 2017Elvis Costello is once again entering the world of film. This time, it's with a new song called "You Shouldn't Look at Me That Way," which the much-celebrated songwriter wrote for the upcoming film Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool.
"'You Shouldn't Look at Me That Way' is a song dealing with two people who have a lot of secrets," Costello explained in a statement. "They were in a relationship and perhaps had difficulty seeing each other as they really were. All lovers have secrets. One lover has some vanity but also a lot of vulnerability. The title really came from that. It could refer to a seductive gaze but also a plea not to be judged."

Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool was directed by Paul McGuigan and stars Annette Bening, Jamie Bell, Vanessa Redgrave and Julie Walters. It's slated to hit theatres on December 29 via Sony Pictures Classics. You can watch a trailer for the movie below Costello's new song.
