Fans can expect to catch the song at upcoming live dates, with the group also set to perform at Rock Werchter, Pinkpop, and Y-Not festivals. Elbow will play their own shows at Halifax’s Piece Hall and Canons Marsh Amphitheatre in Bristol, before returning for a homecoming gig at Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl.

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, he said: “I’ve never had a conversation with another writer that hasn’t in some way informed my own work.”
