elbow Set to Release Album 3/11, Announce North American Tour Dates
elbow will be making a welcomed return to North America in continued support of their sixth studio album "The Take Off and Landing of Everything", which is due for release on March 11 in the US (Concord Music Group) .
On May 11, the Manchester five-piece -- and favorite to many -- will be embarking on their nationwide tour in Washington, DC, and will be winding up at the The Wiltern Theater on May 28.
Musically and lyrically "The Take Off and Landing of Everything" contains many familiar elements, with the early taster "Fly Boy Blue / Lunette'" that harks back to debut single "Newborn" in its step change melody and rhythmic shift mid song. ??Meanwhile, "New York Morning", the band's first official single from the album, carries sentiments similar to the beautifully moving track "Scattered Black and Whites" taken from their debut album "Asleep in the Back" to the soaring ballad of "Open Arms" from their last release "build a rocket boys!".
"The Take Off and Landing of Everything" was recorded in Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios and at the band's facilities at Blueprint Studios in Salford, England. As with previous albums, the million selling "The Seldom Seen Kid" and platinum follow up "build a rocket boys!", it was produced by the band's keyboardist Craig Potter.
