Elbow to release new ‘Lost Worker Bee’ EP later this month

The four featured tracks are all based upon the band’s home town, Manchester.

Elbow have announced they will release a new EP, titled ‘Lost Worker Bee’, later this week, on Friday 24th July. The record will feature four new tracks, all based upon their home town of Manchester.

“Elbow are involved in various solo projects and collaborative endeavours for the next few months and we just felt we really wanted to get ‘something’ away to tide fans over until the next album,” says the band’s Guy Garvey.

“We’ve always loved the EP as a format and we’ve enjoyed making this one so much I wouldn’t be surprised if there was another before long. All the songs on this EP are set in Manchester city centre.

“Manchester’s symbol has been the worker bee for hundreds of years and the lead track is about finding love far away from home. Far from being just a stop gap this is one of our proudest releases.”

The track listing is as follows:

1. ‘Lost Worker Bee’
2. ‘And It Snowed’
3. ‘Roll Call’
4. ‘Usually Bright’

Elbow will play Kendal Calling (30th July - 2nd August), where DIY is an official media partner. Tickets are on sale now. Visit for more information.
