(Radio.com) The Roots have played backing band to many artists throughout their career, including D'Angelo, John Legend, and in their day job as house band for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. The keeper of rhythm ?uestlove and his merry band join forces with the continuously experimental Elvis Costello for a collaborative album Wise Up Ghost.

The album is out September 17 via the famous jazz label Blue Note Records, but you can stream it now over at NPR as part of their famed "First Listen" series here.

"It's a moody, brooding affair," ?uestlove says of the album, "cathartic rhythms and dissonant lullabies. I went stark and dark on the music, Elvis went HAM on some ole Ezra Pound sh*t."

Previously, the duo released the music video for the lead-off track "Walk Us Up Town." That, you can watch here.
