Elbow singer Guy Garvey has announced that he will be launching a vinyl-only record label.

In an interview with the BBC, the singer said he will be releasing a series of four-track EPs – one of which will be instrumental and one will be spoken word. Each release will feature a free download code too.

"We don't want disposable songs - we want a 20 minute record," Garvey says. "Young bands that are perhaps self-financing and have to make money through touring can release three EPs rather than one album. That's three times as much excuse to tour, so it's working commercially."

He added that making the EPs would be challenging for artists, but rewarding for music fans. "You're making something that somebody who really loves your music is going to go and find - it's like leaving a note in your lover's pocket that they won't find for six months."

He will be setting up the label with Jim Chancellor, head of Fiction Records, which is Elbow's record label.

Elbow's B-sides compilation 'Dead In The Boot' is out this week. The 13-track album features B-sides and non-album tracks which have been selected by the band as their favourite from their 15-year career.
