Elvis Costello Sings On New Fall Out Boy Single

But he’s not the only one. “What A Catch, Donnie,” the third single from the band’s forthcoming fifth studio album Folie à Deux features a whole case of characters singing lines from various Fall Out Boy songs. In an especially meta move, Costello handles Folie‘s second single, “Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown On A Bad Bet.” Other crooners include Hall & Oates fan Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes (“Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down”), Panic At The Disco’s Brendon Urie (“Dance, Dance”), ex-Midtown dude Gabriel Saporta (“Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy”), The Academy Is…’s William Beckett (“Growing Up”), etc. Right, Costello is sorta odd man out among a bunch of Decaydancers. Listen.

Between this, Momofuku, and his work with Lucinda Williams, Jenny Lewis, and Colbert, Feist, and Toby Keith, Elvis certainly hasn’t left the building.

Folie à Deux is out 12/16 via Decaydance/Island/Fueled By Ramen.
