King of America is the tenth studio album by British rock singer and songwriter Elvis Costello, credited to “The Costello Show featuring the Attractions and Confederates” in the UK and Europe and to “The Costello Show featuring Elvis Costello” in North America. Released on 21 February 1986, it peaked at No. 11 on the UK album chart and No. 39 on the Billboard 200. In The Village Voice‘s annual Pazz & Jop critics poll for the year’s best albums, King of America finished at No. 2, and it was also selected as one of Rolling Stone magazine’s top twenty albums of the year.

Released in the United Kingdom as F-Beat ZL 70946, and in the United States as Columbia JC40173, some songs have a country music feel, reflecting Costello’s interest in Americana, whilst “American Without Tears” deals with the experience of Irish immigrants in the US and “Little Palaces” references Costello’s working-class roots.
