New Elbow Album Confirmed
Elbow are putting the finishing touches on a brand new album, the band’s keyboard player Craig Potter has revealed online.
The band will make a statement next week after revealing an image on their Facebook page showing the band in a recording studio. Now, in a direct message to Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody, the band’s keyboard player has confirmed the band are nearly done on their sixth studio album. Potter’s tweet came after Lightbody tweeted a photo of himself with REM frontman Michael Stipe.
Elbow are also strongly rumoured to be appearing at Glastonbury festival next year. They last played the event in 2011, when they performed a triumphant set on the Pyramid Stage before U2. Many festival-goers argued that Guy Garvey and co’s performance far surpassed that of U2, and that they should have originally been headliners.
Last month, efestivals.co.uk began touting Elbow as a ‘strong rumour’ to play the Pyrmaid Stage. The website is renowned for being fairly accurate and reliable when it comes to festival tip-offs.
