Wise Up Ghost & Other Songs, the collaborative album between Brit songwriter unstoppable force Elvis Costello and esteemed Philadelphia hip-hop band The Roots, is due September 17 on Blue Note.

A new lyric video for "Walk Us Uotown," the lead track to the album, has just been released. It features EC and Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson - that's them with their glasses on - sitting around a turntable, with Questo turning the crank. Watch it below. (Via Pitchfork.)
