The new album is already generating raves. Q Magazine’s April cover story includes a glowing 5 STAR album review that states, “The Take Off and Landing of Everything is the perfect expression yet of everything that is elbow. As their best album to date, it will lift your heart and fill your soul… This is the sound of a band throwing their arms around the world.” MOJO’s 4 STAR review similarly asserts, “Theirs is the graceful ability to elevate the everyday.”
The Take Off and Landing of Everything was recorded at Real World Studios and at the band’s facilities at Blueprint Studios in Salford, England. As with previous albums, the million selling The Seldom Seen Kid and platinum follow-up build a rocket boys!, it was produced by the band’s keyboardist Craig Potter. The new album is out now on Fiction/Concord Records.
