Elbow to release new EP 'Lost Worker Bee' this Friday

Elbow will release a new EP this week.

The English group will unleash the four-track effort 'Lost Worker Bee' on Friday (July 24).

The songs - 'Lost Worker Bee', 'And It Snowed', 'Roll Call' and 'Usually Bright' - are influenced by their hometown Manchester.

Singer Guy Garvey commented: "Elbow are involved in various solo projects and collaborative endeavours for the next few months, and we just felt we really wanted to give 'something' away to tide fans over until the next album.

"We've always loved the EP as a format and we've enjoyed making this one so much, I wouldn't be surprised if there was another before long.

"All the songs on this EP are set in Manchester city centre. Manchester's symbol has been the worker bee for hundreds of years, and the lead track is about finding love far away from home.

"Far from being just a stop gap, this is one of our proudest releases."
