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.
