The Roots and Elvis Costello are working together on a collaborative album, which is titled Wise Up Ghost, and is scheduled to be released Sept. 17 via Blue Note Records.

Per a press release, the recordings¬†“took place in secret” during “the dead of night.” The album was produced by ?uestlove with Costello and engineer Steve Mandel. And while it initially began as an idea for a Record Store Day single, it ended up being fleshed out into a full LP.

Watch Costello discuss the album in an interview with Fuse.
