In 2012, Anna and her musical team released their debut album, Belly of Winter. Business became a whole lot busier after that.
It has been a couple of years since Elbow were last on our shores. What have you been up to in that time? Elbow has spent that time on The Take Off and Landing of Everything, their sixth studio release. The band actually floated a couple of other names for the release before settling on the one we know.
