Elbow will release seventh album ‘Little Fictions’ on February 3. They recently unveiled the track ‘It’s All Disco’, which frontman Guy Garvey says was inspired by a conversation he had with Pixies’ Black Francis.

This will be their first release as a four-piece, following the departure of drummer Richard Jupp earlier this year. They already have an extensive UK and Ireland tour booked in for February and March. Check out the dates for this tour below, with tickets on sale now.
