Elbow releasing B-sides compilation

By | Published on Wednesday 18 July 2012


Elbow have chosen thirteen B-sides from across their thirteen year career to form a new compilation titled ‘Dead In The Boot’. Featuring tracks ranging from the historic (‘None One’ circa 2000) to the recent (‘Buffalo Ghosts’, the reverse to limited ten-inch versions of the band’s 2011 single, ‘Open Arms’), it’s set for release on 27 Aug.

Singer Guy Garvey attached this note on the LP: “The band have always loved B-side land and this is a collection of our favourites. None of our B-sides are album rejects. It’s a different space, usually just post finishing an album when all the members of Elbow are chiming and feeling very creative. This gives ‘Dead In The Boot’ a real late night vibe. My sister came up with the title after we released ‘Asleep In The Back.’ Some of these songs are the favourites we have ever written. It was important to us that this collection be an album in its own right, so for some fans it may seem like there are glaring omissions, but these songs are the ones that hung together perfectly”.
