Track Of The Day: Elbow - 'Fly Boy Blue/Lunette'

The sixth Elbow album is coming on March 10, via Fiction Records. But before the Manchester band return with 'The Take Off and Landing of Everything', this lovely new track 'Fly Boy Blue' (partnered by the tranquil 'Lunette') is available instantly when you pre-order through iTunes. It's not too far from the gently psychedelic folk-tinged sound of the recent Midlake album 'Antiphon', though its arrangement and tone is something different, and it doesn't exactly sound like Elbow at first either. While the second half of this medley returns to more familiar Guy Garvey territory, it's a comeback song that takes a little while to sink in, and as it does, you find more and more interesting surprises in there...
