Elbow release for Record Store Day in aid of CALM

To celebrate Record Store Day on 22nd April 2017, elbow have announced a 7” release as part of Torch Songs, the project led by the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM). The release marks the first release from the band to follow their recent UK Number One album ‘Little Fictions’; their second consecutive album to debut at the top of the album charts.

Torch Songs brings together top artists and music lovers to share the tracks they turn to when things get tough, shedding light on how commonplace it is to face pressures in life. Latest UK figures show men are three times more likely than women to take their own life, and less likely to tell anyone about going through depression.
CALM launched Torch Songs on International Men’s Day 2016, since releasing exclusive and unexpected covers from artists including Years & Years, The Vaccines, Frank Turner, Enter Shakiri and Twin Atlantic.
A limited edition run of only 1,100 copies of Elbow’s new 7” release, a cover of ‘August & September’ by The The, will be available in selected UK record stores. This accompanies online Torch Songs releases from rock band Mallory Knox, Leeds post-punk Post War Glamour Girls and R&B singer Ady Suleiman, who will release a cover of Bill Withers’ soul classic, Lean on Me.

You don’t have to be a musician to get involved — fans are encouraged to spread awareness by sharing their own Torch Songs online with the hashtag #whatsyourtorchsong.
