Elbow, Magnificent (She Says)

British band Elbow is releasing their 7th album, Little Fictions, on February 7.

The first single is Magnificent (She Says), a beautifully textured track featuring some lovely stringwork and emotional undertone their work is known for. The lyrics are hopeful, taken from the perspective of an adult on a young girls’ hopeful view of the world, where “it’s all gonna be magnificent.” Ahh, childlike optimism.

On a side note, I’ve always had a crush for vocalist Guy Garvey. His voice is rich with emotion and scale, and he’s easy on the eyes as well. He has also said ‘There’d be no Elbow without Radiohead’ when citing the band as an influence, so bonus points for that.
