LOS ANGELES, CA Thursday Aug.5.2004 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- On her latest album, "The Girl in the Other Room," Diana Krall collaborated on some new songs with her husband, Elvis Costello. While Krall composed all the music to the songs, she co-wrote the lyrics with Costello.

On the Verve Music Group web site, Krall explains how the pair worked. Said Krall, "I wrote the music and then Elvis and I talked about what we wanted to say. I told him stories and wrote pages and pages of reminiscences, descriptions and images, and he put them into tighter lyrical form. For 'Departure Bay,' I wrote down a list of things that I love about home, things I realized were different, even exotic, now that I've been away."
