Hmmm! It's gotta be a one-off, yes? Not an album. But I hope I'm wrong, and it is an album! (I would expect some Imposters to be knocking around if it was an album).

I wonder if this is in any way connected to this - a fund raising tribute show at Carnegie Hall, honouring the songs of Prince, anchored by The Roots:

7 March is a few weeks away still, but since EC will be touring for a few more weeks, perhaps this was a quick rehearsal for the Carnegie Hall show. Pop Life and Purple Rain anyone?

i knew this was gonna happen. now, to try to get a cheap ticket on my next pay day. glad i work six blocks away now. and a big "NO" to moot! we will get something different; Little Red Corvette, If I Was Your Girlfriend or any other PRINCE gem is MUCH preferred by me. (maybe because i've seen POPLIFE and PURPLE RAIN already!) come to recall...i even got a snippet of SIGN 'O THE TIMES back in 1989 during Pump It Up!

Questlove: D'Angelo's Album '99% Done,' Sounds Like an Instant Classic
by Chris Payne, N.Y. | January 21, 2013 11:00 EST

(extract)

Last year, D'Angelo took part in a series of covers and jam sessions alongside The Roots and others Jun. 10 at Bonnaroo, marking his first U.S. performance in a decade. With the Roots, Quest has a pair of albums slated for a 2013 release: the band's 17th studio album and a just-announced collaborative effort with Elvis Costello.

The Roots' longtime engineer Steven Mandel tweeted yesterday:

‪@ElvisCostello‬ just called me from Australia to discuss the Kinks song "Australia."


There's also this from September:

Steven Mandel who mixes sound for the Jimmy Fallon show and produces the Roots band recently recorded Elvis Costello in Vancouver with the Roots.


And possibly related news from Rod Hohl:

Keep an eye out for the new Squeeze tribute album "Swindles" - featuring Erykah Badu, Elvis Costello, the Roots and much more.  Glenn Tillbrook himself sings on my track!  Due out soon on Yep Roc records.

And this from August:

Dear Dave,
I recently used one of your prototype CM-12SE mics at Crew Studios in Vancouver and was referred to your website by Mike Cashin, Studio Manager/Head Engineer.

Currently working on an Elvis Costello and The Roots album, which is what we used your mic for, and I gotta say, it was perfect for Elvis's voice and it sounded amazing. We are going to be continuing work on the album in New York and I wanted to purchase a CM-12SE for continuity and also for further projects with and without Elvis. Of course, I'll be mentioning you and your microphone in the credits of the album, it was that great. I mean, we had a nice mic pre and an LA-2A but still, I don't even have to EQ it. Awesome work!

I have been the engineer for the Roots albums since around 1997 and also work with them on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Is the best way to just buy it straight off the website?

I'd like to pick one up immediately."

Thanks,
Steve Mandel

Hmm, so when he says it's an Elvis Costello X Roots album does he mean a Roots album with a couple of Elvis collabs or does the whole album have Elvisness I wonder.
This is an interesting development!
Golly, I haven't listened to the Roots since the 90s.

Bruce performed at his Carnegie Hall tribute in 2007:

So I'm sure we'll be seeing Prince performing with The Roots (and maybe another friend or two?).
