We told you a while back about how The Roots and Elvis Costello were in the studio, working on a full album of collaborative music, and we shared with you the first single “Walk Us Uptown.” That first beat had a rude boy swag, ska-scum kind of vibe, matching Costello’s iconic vocals with the Roots famous groove and Questlove’s awesome rhythms.
Now, the wait is over, and you can stream the entire album on Soundcloud through an exlusive partnership with the Guardian. All 12 songs are there, packing more funk, harmonies and classic rock’n'roll vibes. It doesn’t cling to one genre or style, but explores many different colors and feels. Definitely worth the listen.
Look out for the official release Sept. 17.
