Elbow’s Guy Garvey announces debut solo album ‘Courting The Squall’ – hear ‘Angela’s Eyes’

Singer releases lone LP on October 30, watch video for lead track now

Elbow frontman Guy Garvey has shared the lead track from his upcoming debut solo album.

The singer releases his solo debut, ‘Courting The Squall’, on October 30. It follows his band’s recent ‘Lost Worker Bee’ EP, released in July.

Garvey has preceded the album’s release with a video for new track ‘Angela’s Eyes’. Watch below.


A press release says of the clip, “Filmed at The Carlton Club in Whalley Range, Manchester by long-time visual collaborators Soup Collective, the short sees Guy and band the focus of the attentions of a crowd of lascivious women and was inspired by a documentary on London’s ’60s strip clubs.”

“Public morality laws at the time banned naked women from moving so a man was employed to operate a curtain which rose and fell to allow the performers to change their pose. In Guy’s version the genders reverse and a crowd of invited friends and family of Guy and the band play their roles to the full.”

Guy Garvey will also tour the UK and Ireland later this year at the following dates:

London O2 Shepherds Bush Empire (December 1 & 2)
Manchester Albert Hall (4,5)
Dublin Olympia (7)
Glasgow O2 ABC (8)
