Elvis Costello Is Making An Album With The Roots

Allow us to once again throw you in this direction, as we lay some collabo-news on you: According to Billboard, The Roots and Elvis Costello will be releasing a collaborative album sometime this year. ?uestlove told Billboard that the impetus for the creative combination came from Mr. McManus’ appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon; “It was really love at first sight. The second time he came on [Late Night], we surpassed the first one. So by the third time, he was like, ‘Let’s stop messing around and do something together.’” ?uest then called it “brilliant,” and said the collection will be out sometime this year and contains 12-14 of 20 or so songs they worked on together.

Let’s just hope it’s more This Year’s Model and less Painted From Memory, though we’ll take some Bacharach.
