The Roots & Elvis Costello Debut Lyric Video For "Tripwire"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

The Roots and Elvis Costello return with the lyric video for "Tripwire" from their Wise Up Ghost LP. The footage features a wire winding itself around a circuitous and slightly unpredictable path that takes the listener through the track's lyrics. The animation mirrors the words at the top of the song, which begins with Costello singing, "Just because you don't speak the language, doesn't mean you can't understand." Though the words move in various directions, they remain perfectly legible. Check the footage below to watch the lyric video for "Tripwire" from The Roots and Elvis Costello. Purchase the Wise Up Ghost LP via iTunes.
