Giants Of All Sizes is the eighth studio album by English alternative-rock titans Elbow, and features guests including Jesca Hoop, The Plumedores and South London newcomer Chilli Chilton. Lead singer and lyricist Guy Garvey describes the album as: “an angry, old blue lament which finds its salvation in family, friends, the band and new life.” This is an album that lyrically takes in moments of deep personal loss while reflecting its times by confronting head-on the spectres of injustice and division not just in the UK but across the world. It’s a record that could only have been made at this time.
The album was recorded at Clouds Hill Studio in Hamburg, The Dairy in Brixton, Studio 604 in Vancouver and Blueprint Studios in Salford, with additional recording taking place at various band members’ home studios across Manchester. As with their previous four studio albums, it was produced and mixed by keyboard player Craig Potter.
Note: the LP is available on indies-only coloured vinyl.
