Watch Elvis Costello and The Roots Cover Springsteen on <i>Fallon</i>

Last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Elvis Costello joined The Roots for two Bruce Springsteen covers. The British singer’s distinctive voice was the precise fit for “Brilliant Disguise,” off 1987’s Tunnel of Love. And on the online exclusive rendition of “Fire” from 2010’s collection of unreleased songs, The Promise. Costello trades Springsteen’s whispers and muted guitar for a horn section that bursts and bleats on each offbeat.

Check out the two covers below, and tune in to Fallon for an all-Springsteen episode tonight.
