'Wise Up Ghost'

It's official: The new collaboration between the great Elvis Costello and The Roots has a title and it will be Wise Up Ghost.

The title of the album to be released September 17th turned up in my inbox because of what Questlove had to say about it:
Roots drummer Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, who produced along with Steven Mandel, said, "It's a moody, broody affair, cathartic rhythms and dissonant lullabies. I went stark and dark on the music, Elvis went HAM on some ole Ezra Pound s---."
I happen to have a Google News alert set up for all things Ezra Pound. Imagine my surprise when my Ezra Pound obsessing led to finding out the name of what will be a fabulous album. Come on, September!
