Elbow release Record Store Day film to accompany All Disco


Elbow have released a short documentary-style film to accompany their track All Disco.

The song originally appeared on Guy Garvey and co’s latest album Little Fictions, which came out in February via Polydor/Concord.

The video was filmed during this year’s Record Store Day and features interviews with people about what music means to them as well as asking people for their favourite song and guilty pleasures.

The short film is said to be about “the importance of music but also a reminder of the joy and community that music brings to our lives.”

A statement on the video reads: “The song title is inspired by Pixies’ Frank Black – All Disco was how Frank described his music while being interviewed with Guy for his 6 Music Radio show.

“It’s a phrase that stuck in the Elbow frontman’s mind as a perfect understated tag for a lyric addressed to new songwriters to ‘give nearly everything to their art but remember their art is not everything.’

“The track puts guitarist Mark Potter front and centre and is regarded by all four members as the first time that their love of the likes of The Velvet Underground and 60s psychedelia has taken such a direct influence on their music.”

Elbow are currently on tour and have live shows planned across Europe and North America over the coming months. Find a full list of dates below.
