Elvis Costello Comes Back for More on ‘Fallon’

Rocker and the Roots dig deeper into their new LP

Elvis Costello was back for more yesterday on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, bringing a string section and guest vocalist Marisol as he and the Roots glided through "Cinco Minutos Con Vos" from their new album together, Wise Up Ghost. Costello sang in sultry tones, trading verses in English for La Marisoul's throaty Spanish vocals, delivered over a thrumming baseline and rich horns.

As they did earlier this week, Costello and the Roots stuck around for a web-exclusive; this time, it was a version of the foreboding "Wise Up Ghost," pairing moody orchestral parts with a descending piano line as Costello issued vocals that sounded like a warning.

Wise Up Ghost came out this week, and Costello and the Roots celebrated Monday night with a show at Brooklyn Bowl.
