Nearly three years since Elbow released their sterling sixth studio album The Take Off and Landing of Everything (2014), the acclaimed UK band have returned with the lead single from their forthcoming follow-up LP Little Fictions. The soaring, strings-laden “Magnificent (She Says)” finds the group in signature inspired form and is sure to whet the collective appetites of Elbow fans for the pending long player due in stores February 3rd.
In a recent interview with BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley, charismatic frontman Guy Garvey explained that the new album is “really quite chunky and beat-heavy. There’s a sparseness to the songs which perhaps we’re not known for. The themes are ranging as always, great big themes and concerns for the world at the same time as falling in love, looking forwards and backwards and all of the things.”
