LISTEN: Elvis Costello and The Roots ‘Wise Up Ghost’ Album Stream

Elvis Costello and The Roots have released a stream of their collaborative album, Wise Up Ghost, one week before its release on September 17.

It was love at first sight, for Costello and The Roots. In March last year, Costello made an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, where The Roots’ were acting as the house band.

“It was really love at first sight... The second time he came on, we surpassed the first one. So by the third time, he was like, ‘Let’s stop messing around and do something together,’” The Roots’ Questlove has said of Costello.

Costello has described the album as: “the shortest distance between here and there… (containing) both rhythm and what is read”.
