‘Empires’, the new single from elbow’s forthcoming album ‘Giants of All Sizes’, is out now.

Recorded at Clouds Hill Studio, Hamburg, the track bears all the hallmarks of the band’s time together in the intimate recording setting.

“We thought the studio would give us inner city vibes, but we were on the edge of Hamburg which meant we spent more time in Clouds Hill rather than exploring. With time to spare, we sat around and played together in a way we haven’t for a long time, and experimented and improvised with the music which led to the looser feel you hear on ‘Empires’.” – Craig Potter
