"Wise Up Ghost" CD

Amy Adams
August 12, 2013

Clash of the titans! Our not-so-secret crush Elvis Costello has teamed up with hip-hop baddies The Roots to bring us Wise Up Ghost (Blue Note Records), an album that the former describes as “the shortest distance between here and there.” We’ve already committed these lyrics to memory: “The solitary star announcing vacancy burnt out as we arrived; they’d throw us back across the border if they knew that we survived.” Available September 17, at amazon.com.
