Zane Lowe of BBC’s Radio 1 debuted the new single from Elbow, Grounds for Divorce, last week on his show. The song comes off the forthcoming record, The Seldom Seen Kid, due out in March on Fiction Records.
Singer Guy Garvey told BBC Radio’s 6 Music what to expect from the record:
“MP3 culture and download culture has meant that songs are sold on an individual song basis – on the quality of an individual song.
“But we very definitely wanted to make one last ‘album,’ if you know what i mean, in terms of – we are an album band, very definitely, and even if it’s picked apart it’s meant to be listened to start to finish.”
Well, until I get the full album, I’m going to have to survive on this radio rip of Grounds for Divorce, a blues-injected stomper that reveals the album’s title within the lyrics (“Mondays are for drinking to the seldom seen kid” … ?).

This band is so amazing. Can’t wait to hear the entire album.
This is a great song and I love it’s idea. I work for http://www.firstwivesworld.com, it’s an online community for women in the various stages of divorce. The idea is to take the stigma out of divorce. Love it!

Excellent track. Can’t wait for the album, and the tour. Elbow are easily one of the most under-rated bands around.
