elbow are set to release their as yet untitled new album on March 10th.
elbow's success is both richly deserved and a long time coming. An example of strong songwriting capturing the nation, the group recently returned to the studio to work on a batch of new material.
As with 'build a rocket boy!' and breakthrough album 'The Seldom Seen Kid' producer is being overseen by keyboardist Craig Potter.
Though the title has yet to be confirmed, elbow have stated that their new album will be released on March 10th. NME report that the working title is 'All At Once' with Guy Garvey commenting:
"When you’re 40, you're all ages at once, because you're thinking of your youth, which has very definitely passed, and about how you became the person you are. You wonder about how the rest of your life plays out from here."
Insisting that the album has "some big themes" the songwriter then states that the album has "got some old-school spacerock sensibilities".
Bluffing? You'll find out on March 10th.
