Hear now: Elvis Costello and the Roots premiere 'Walk Us Uptown'
Elvis Costello has debuted the first song from his forthcoming album with hip-hop band the Roots, "Wise Up Ghost," and, predictably, it's got some funk in its genes. Costello, whose longtime band the Attractions helped propel him to fame, has over his career worked with many unlikely collaborators, including the Brodsky String Quartet, Burt Bacharach, Paul McCartney and Costello's wife, vocalist Diana Krall.
