What Am I Without You - Music Box

    ‘What Am I Without You’ is the closing track on elbow’s ninth studio album; ‘Flying Dream 1’. The album was recorded at The Theatre Royal in Brighton in 2021, while closed due to the pandemic. Uncut called it "gorgeously somnambulant, yet softly romantic”, mojo cited “the subtle complexity of the music” and the observer noted it’s “softly articulated warmth and empathy" - drawing comparisons with talk talk's legendary ‘laughing stock'.

    Raising money for Mat from Vibes Records' recovery fund Elbow are donating their share of proceeds from this music box to help facilitate the ongoing therapy for their good friend Mat Andrew, the former owner of Vibes Records in Bury. We will also be donating our share of the proceeds to the fund.

    Cool It Down

      It could only be called alchemy, the transformative magic that happens during the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ most tuned-in moments in the studio, when their unique chemistry sparks opens a portal, and out comes a song like “Maps” or “Zero” or the latest addition to their canon, “Spitting off the Edge of the World featuring Perfume Genius” — an epic shot-to-the heart of pure YYYs beauty and power.

      A thunderstorm of a return is what the legendary trio has in store for us on Cool It Down, their fifth studio album and their first since 2013’s Mosquito. The eight-track collection, bound to be a landmark in their catalog, is an expert distillation of their best gifts that impels you to move, and cry, and listen closely.
