Elbow have unveiled a brand new song titled All Disco, inspired by Pixies legend Black Francis. Listen to it here.
As reported on AAA recently, the Mercury Prize-winning band are set to release their seventh studio album, the long-awaited follow-up to 2014’s The Take Off And Landing Of Everything, on February 3, before heading out on a huge UK tour that will see them play two nights at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall in March.
The cinematic-sounding All Disco is taken from upcoming album Little Fictions, and was inspired after frontman Guy Garvey had a conversation with Black Francis.
“I remember this phrase from Black Francis from the Pixies,” said Garvey. “I interviewed him for a radio show 10 years ago in Lynchburg Tennessee.
“I was to talking to him about between him being Black Francis and Frank Black and all these different incarnations. I said ‘with all these different styles of music, where are you going next?’ He said something along the lines of ‘you have punk rock, you have rock, you have blues, you have soul, it’s all disco.”
Garvey continued: “And I just love that attitude, from one of the most influential people – particularly to me. For him to have this attitude of ‘put everything into it, invest everything into it, but remember it’s not everything. I think that’s a really good way to do it. He’s not having any money but he gave us a really good chorus there.”
