Wise Up: Thought serves as the remix EP companion to the album Wise Up Ghost, the genre-defying collaborative tour de force from Elvis Costello and The Roots that was released earlier this year to critical acclaim. The EP available now as an exclusive CD releaseas part of Record Store Day’s “Back to Black Friday” initiative and available only via the participating independent retailers.
On the album, Costello and Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson stirred a musical pot of gumbo, mixing together elements of soul, funk, hip hop, punk, and afro beat. Wise Up: Thought is a deconstructive plate of their soul stew and features genre-specific remixes and reworks that play off those included in the album’s sonic landscape.
