Following the recent success of John Mellencamp and Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello has teamed up with producer T-Bone Burnett for the upcoming acoustic Americana album The Secret, The Profane, And Sugar Cane, according to Billboard. The album, which marks Costello's first collaboration with Burnett since 1989's Spike, will be his debut release for the Hear Music label.

Ten of the album's tracks are new Costello compositions, including two written with Burnett. One song, "I Felt The Chill," was co-written by Costello with Loretta Lynn, with two of the album's tracks -- "Hidden Same" and "Boom Chicka Boom" -- were originally written by Costello for Johnny Cash.
