Metronomy and Elbow lead new album releases (March 10)

Albums from Eagulls, MØ, Dean Wareham and The Twang are also released today (March 10)

Metronomy and Elbow lead this week’s new album releases (March 10).

Elbow release their sixth studio album, the follow up to 2011’s ‘Build A Rocket Boys!’, which was nominated for the Barclaycard Mercury Prize.

Frontman Guy Garvey explained the new album’s working title ties in with its main theme, of the five band members approaching their forties. He said: “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.”

Meanwhile, Metronomy’s Joe Mount recently said that he was surprised at how “viable” being a musician was, and guessed that he would make two more albums as Metronomy following new record ‘Love Letters’, before becoming a record producer.

He commented:”I imagine that one day I will stop doing this and be a producer, I can see that. But with every record, I’m always surprised by the reality of the situation. With every record, I’m so surprised by how viable being a musician is, that I’m like, well, I can put off this idea that I have to become a producer.” He added: “I now think I’ve probably got two more albums left in me.”
