Elbow release a handpicked collection of their best moments to date. The album, which covers two CDs in its deluxe form, features tracks from all the band’s seven studio albums to date and highlights their incredible musical output over the last eighteen years from the release of the ‘Newborn’ Ep in 1999.

‘The Best Of’ comes in two versions. The standard, one cd version, features the global hits ‘One Day Like This’ and ‘Grounds For Divorce’ alongside recent radio favourite ‘Magnificent (She Says)’ from the band current studio album and UK Number One, ‘Little Fictions’. Earlier work is represented by live favourites ‘Mirrorball’, ‘Scattered Black and Whites’, ‘Leaders Of The Free World’ and ‘Lippy Kids’, ‘a gorgeous meditation on adolescence’ as The Guardian would have it and a stand out moment at all elbow performances.

The second CD in the deluxe release goes further into the band’s history and album releases, again spanning their entire career to date. The song that first brought the band to mass public attention, ‘Newborn’, is here alongside its follow up and fellow NME Single Of The Week, ‘Any Day Now’ and ‘The Loneliness of a Tower Crane Driver’. This disc also contains the band’s most recent original recording, ‘Kindling (Fickle Flame)’ featuring John Grant.
