Elbow have shared an awesome new video for their single ‘It’s All Disco’. It’s pretty sentimental and features interviews with record collectors who were asked why they love music and buy records –have a goo at it below.
The track, ‘It’s All Disco’, which features on Elbow’s seventh studio album ‘Little Fictions’, takes its title from a quote once made by Pixies front man Frank Black. He said that “whatever music you love, it’s all disco.”
The new video is also inspired by Black’s comment. Music fans were asked why they love music and buy records. They were also asked about their favourite styles of music and artists – with very few of those interviewed confessing to a love of disco!
The video for Elbow’s ‘It’s All Disco’ was directed by Austin Humphries, with the interviews having been filmed during this year’s Record Store Day, which took place in April.
The English rock band have played together since 1990 but only adopted the name Elbow in 1997; having originally been known as Mr Soft. In 2009, Guy, Craig, Pete and Mark won the Brit award for Best British Group. Five of Elbow’s studio albums have charted in the UK’s Top 10 since the release of their first LP in 2001. Their, 2014 album The Take Off And Landing Of Everything, topped Irish charts at number one. And their lastest Little Fictions also achieved the #1 spot in Ireland.
Elbow will play Live at the Marquee in Cork this week, June 21.
Tickets are, available from www.ticketmaster.ie and at Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.
