Elvis Costello reportedly to release new album for Record Store Day

Elvis Costello is reportedly to release a new album for Record Store Day 2013.

The album, as yet untitled, will be a collaboration between Costello and The Roots. According to an interview on NYU Local with Roots’ drummer Questlove, the collaboration grew out of Costello’s appearances on American chat show Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where The Roots are the house band.

“After Elvis Costello’s third appearance,” he said, “we liked him so much we were like hey why don’t we make a record? Well what went from being one song to be released on Record Store Day became – why don’t we try four songs? Now we have a brilliant album. And, in the whole history of The Roots, I have never bragged on an album first, but I actually love this record.”

This year's Record Store Day will also include anticipated low-run releases by Roky Erickson, David Bowie, Public Image Ltd, and Willie Nelson, .

Yesterday, we reported news of a rumoured Bob Dylan single for Record Store Day.
