Stream Elvis Costello’s Collaborative Album With The Roots One Week Early

How does one become best friends with the Roots and record an album with them? Well, it helps if you’re Elvis Costello, so if you’re Elvis Costello, you appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, make nice with Questlove & Co., discuss working on an album together, record said album together over a year’s worth of secret sessions, give it a title (Wise Up Ghost), then release it on September 17, 2013, and one week earlier on NPR.

But unless you’re Elvis Costello, this probably won’t happen to you. For the rest of us mere mortals who aren’t Elvis Costello, we can listen to the entirety of Wise Up Ghost here, and enjoy the title track below.
