elbow released the first track “Magnificent (She Says)”, taken from their highly anticipated forthcoming album “Little Fictions.” Guitarist Mark Potter believes that “Magnificent (She Says)” is “the song people have been waiting for us to write” and its joyous music clearly had an effect on lyricist and singer Guy Garvey who reveals that the title line was “the first thing that came to my lips” as the music developed. As a taster for the new album, the track marks out the scale and ambition of “Little Fictions, ” an album that encompasses a desire from all four members to make a record that pulls no punches and follows it instincts. In conversation about the track the band state that they were determined to “let the song go where it needed to, not to back out of the big chorus because that was what it needed.” “Magnificent (She Says)” is available now on all digital platforms.

“Little Fictions” was recorded in Scotland and Manchester and sees the band collaborate with the string players of The Hallé Orchestra, the Hallé Ancoats Community Choir, members of London Contemporary Voices and session drummer Alex Reeves. As with the previous three elbow albums it was produced by band member Craig Potter.
