Painted from Memory is a collaboration between Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach. It was released 29 September 1998 on Mercury Records, a division of Universal Music Group.The collaboration commenced with “God Give Me Strength”, a commission for the 1996 film Grace of My Heart, directed by Allison Anders and starring Illeana Douglas.

It features vocals by Costello on two songs, and by jazz singer Cassandra Wilson on two songs, one of which is a duet employing both.Costello had long been a Bacharach fan, and had recorded several Bacharach songs, beginning with “I Just Don’t Know What to Do with Myself,” released on a 1978 Stiff Records compilation Live Stiffs Live. Costello would also cover ” I’ll Never Fall in Love Again ” for the soundtrack to Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.I Still Have That Other Girl” won a Grammy Award in 1998 for ” Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals ” for Bacharach and Costello.
