Elbow album news

Verve Label Group
Ahead of their eighth studio album release 'Giants Of All Sizes,released in North America on October 11 via Polydor/Verve Label Group, Manchester band elbow have released a new track, ‘White Noise White Heat.’ Listen HERE.

Leader Guy Garvey says about the track, his reaction to London's 2017 Grenfell Tower fire, “I kind of renounce all our previous records with this track, or what we are best known for. What is the point of uplifting songs in the face of this horror?”

The singer and lyricist also describes the album as “an angry, old blue lament which finds its salvation in family, friends, the band and new life.”

Each band member extended their usual process of working on demos alone and followed their vision to its conclusion rather than, as Craig Potter puts it, ‘taking the edges off things to find compromise’. In tandem with this, they returned to playing live in the studio, encouraged to experiment with the banks of analogue equipment at Clouds Hill in Northern Germany.

As with their previous four studio albums, ‘Giants Of All Sizes’ was produced and mixed by keyboard player Craig Potter. Guests across the album include Jesca Hoop, The Plumedores and South London newcomer Chilli Chilton.

Track listing:

Dexter & Sinister
Seven Veils
The Delayed 3:15
