Elvis Costello and the Roots have offered up the first glimpse of their forthcoming collaborative release, Wise Up Ghost, in the form of a video for the track "Walk Us Uptown." The vid features Elvis and Questlove winding up a vintage record player, while adding the song's lyrics over the footage.
So far, the collab has garnered a warm reception from critics, with the Onion's AV Club offering high praise for "Walk Us Uptown":
"Costello's lilting vocal hovers over a groovy bass rhythm and some punchy Questlove drumming, with a spinning record in the background of magazine cutout words flashing across the screen."
The video preview is currently streaming via YouTube. The album is set for release on September 17 via Blue Note.
