Stream Elvis Costello & The Roots' New Album Wise Up Ghost
It only took a brief introduction on the set of Late Night wIth Jimmy Fallon for Elvis Costello and the Roots to team up for their unique new project. Described by ?uestlove as “a moody, brooding affair, cathartic rhythms and dissonant lullabies,” their collaborative album Wise Up Ghost is the result of a year’s work in studio, creating a hybrid of the Roots’ organic, live hip-hop and Costello’s iconic status as legendary wordsmith. Not to mention that Costello “went HAM on some ole Ezra Pound shit,” according to ?uestlove.
You can now hear their album in full on NPR now before it hits store on Sept. 17.
