Elbow joined Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2 last night to announce their return with a new song, ‘Magnificent (She Says)‘ and album Little Fictions to be released next year.
The Manchester band are back as they released new single ‘Magnificent (She Says)‘ last night, with it premiering on Jo Whiley’s show on BBC Radio 2. It’s the first new material from the ‘One Day Like This‘ group since 2014’s The Take Off and Landing of Everything.
Along with the new song, Elbow informed listeners that their next album will be released on February 3rd, titled Little Fictions.
In between their last record and last nights’ unveiling, frontman Guy Garvey had kept himself busy as he released a solo record last year, receiving much praise for his first effort, Courting the Squall, on his own.
The new track, ‘Magnificent (She Says)‘ is available to download now. With it’s hypnotic guitar on a loop and beat throughout, matched with the unmistakable vocals of Garvey, backed by beautiful strings, it’s another stunning song from the ‘Open Arms‘ band.
They’re set to embark on a tour in the spring time, which includes four homecoming dates at Manchester’s O2 Apollo in mid-March, a month after the release of Little Fictions from the 18th to the 21st March.
Listen below to the new single ‘Magnificent (She Says)‘ taken from the forthcoming album Little Fictions, due to be released on February 3rd and available to pre-order now.
