exclusive downloadable single, 26th May 2003

Elbow return in May with a first chance for fans to hear a track from their highly anticipated second LP, "Cast of Thousands", due for release on 18th August.

The single, "Ribcage", will be Elbow's first foray into the world of downloadable music. The band are also giving fans acess to a unique interactive screensaver that plays demo versions of tracks from the LP and offers access to video and audio tracks and the band's favourite websites of the moment.

Those of you who have already seen the screensaver will have noticed that the member of elbow in the "studio" changes over time, allowing everyone a chance to see their favourite member in action.

"Ribcage" is a great taster for fans of "Cast of Thousands". Building on the elbow sound of the Mercury and Brit nominated "Asleep in the Back", the track grows into a hypnotic gospel mantra and is a pointer towards the more expansive approach of "Cast of Thousands", as evidenced by the first known recording of a pre tongue vocal. To achieve this bizarre and unique effect, producer Ben Hillier taped a contact mike to Guy's throat, producing a percussive vocal effect.
