Elbow have confirmed that they are working on new songs for the follow-up to their Mercury Music Prize winning ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’.
The band plan to record the new material after their gig at the MEN Arena in Manchester on September 18.
Singer Guy Garvey told BBC 6 Music: “We’ve got 30 or 40 odds and ends musically.
“I’ve got a couple of books worth of scribbles, so we’re just going to keep doing that for maybe six months.”
Elbow will record the new album in their studio, ‘Blueprint’, in Salford.
Garvey explained: “I’m looking forward to being back in the bunker again, it’s a great space on every level and it’s got a real community buzz about it.”
