“Walk Us UPTOWN” is the lead single from “Wise Up Ghost,” due out September 17 on Blue Note Records. Yes, it’s Elvis Costello with Questlove from The Roots. Yes, it’s awesome. Yes, it’s sponsored by Warby Parker.*
Questlove says of the album, “We had 13 or 14 songs, but then we said, ‘Ooh! Wait a minute! Let’s replace four of these songs with four better songs! And now we have the tightest 12-14 song collection out of about 20 songs that we made.” No release date, title, or any other info has been revealed yet, but Questlove assures us, “I can just say that it is brilliant.” [via Billboard]
