Elbow have shared the title and release date for their forthcoming new album.
The band took to Twitter to reveal the follow up to their 2017 LP ‘Little Fictions’ with a picture of a billboard with the title ‘Giants Of All Sizes’ and release date of October 11, 2019. You can view the billboard below.
Back in May, the Manchester band teased a new song while sharing footage of a recent live rehearsal.
“Back in rehearsals”, they captioned the video. “Oooh new song…”.
The band are wrapping up a recent tour with a homecoming show at Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl tonight (July 9). The show is part of the Sounds of the City gig-run.

Completing the bill are The Kooks, who’ll play alongside The Sherlocks and Sea Girls on July 12, and a closing set from Hacienda Classical, re-imagining iconic hits from the city’s most famous club on July 13.
Elbow’s seventh album, ‘Little Fictions’, was released back in 2017. In a four-star review, NME said: “Elbow’s standing as the musical prescription tranquilliser you’re either deeply addicted to or find too mild for your narcotic tastes. If you’re chasing the initial buzz, ‘Little Fictions’ is quite a hit.”
Following the LP’s arrival, 2018 saw frontman Garvey become a lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University. Speaking of his role working with young songwriters at the time, he said: “I’ve never had a conversation with another writer that hasn’t in some way informed my own work.”
