Enter to win Elbow’s Giants of All Sizes (out October 11 on Polydor/Universal Music Canada) on vinyl.
English rockers Elbow are back with their eighth full-length album, Giants of All Sizes, which lead singer and lyricist Guy Garvey describes as “an angry, old blue lament which finds its salvation in family, friends, the band and new life.” Lyrically, the album takes in moments of deep personal loss whilst reflecting the world around them by confronting the injustice and division not just in the UK but across the globe.
Despite the doom and gloom in the record’s lyrics, this is Elbow’s most relaxed record in quite a while. Each band member extended their usual process of working on demos alone following their vision to its conclusion rather than, as keyboardist Craig Potter puts it, “taking the edges off things to find compromise.” With this in mind, they returned to playing live in the studio encouraging experimentation with the banks of analogue equipment at Clouds Hill in Northern Germany for a looser, more live feel.
To celebrate the band’s new record, we’re giving away a copy of the new record on vinyl.
