A film crew covered the final recording sessions for a forthcoming documentary.
Formats include CD, 180g heavyweight black vinyl housed in gatefold sleeve, limited edition Indie and HMV exclusive heavyweight gatefold green vinyl, elbow store exclusive heavyweight gatefold transparent vinyl plus store and Amazon-exclusive limited signed copies.
"We don't phone each other for a chat. We don't talk about life outside the music until we're together. These hushed night-time missives told us how each other were doing. When we finally got together, all that was to do was record the songs, honour them with amazing additional singers and players in a gorgeous space and catch up. It was beautiful."
Guy Garvey, August 2021.
