Elbow reveal plans for new album

Manchester band Elbow have spilled the beans on their new album, saying it is "darker and heavier" than 2005's Leaders Of The Free World.

Frontman Guy Garvey told that their new material is a collaborative effort.

"It feels very much like we've done it just the five of us. There's been nobody else in the room," he explained.

"There's still lots of light and shade on it. There's just a lot of things going on. There's been some not so great stuff and some amazing stuff. Just in terms of the families that are growing up in the band - the babies are turning into little boys now, and everybody's happy in that respect."

He added that early in 2006 some of the members of the band went through a difficult time.

"It's quite a mixed bag," he said. "It's certainly got the darkest stuff that we've done. I've never been so confident about anything we've written."

No release date has been confirmed as of yet.
