Elbow announce new album and lengthy UK tour

The Mercury winners release their seventh album in February

Elbow have announced the release of their new album, followed by an lengthy UK tour.

The Mercury-winners’ seventh studio record and the follow-up to 2014’s ‘The Take Off And Landing Of Everything‘ will be released on 3 February, before they head out on their “most extensive tour since 2008, with multi-night residencies in Dublin, Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Manchester and shows in a number of towns they haven’t played for years.”

This will be their first release as a four-piece, following the departure of drummer Richard Jupp earlier this year.


After Guy Garvey released and toured his debut solo album ‘Courting The Squall’ last year, the band hit the studio back in January – and recently joined Instagram to share images and footage of the recording sessions:
