Elbow are back with a new track that, even on first listen, can be filed under ‘beautiful’. ‘Lippy Kids’ is a piano-driven number and when Guy starts to croon, every problem you might have just seems to melt away. Watch the video for ‘Lippy Kids’ below, recorded live at Blueprint Studios in Manchester, where most of the forthcoming album was made. The recurring line of ‘Build a rocket, boys,’ is also the name of said album, due out in March.

Guy Garvey told BBC 6 Music: “We thought it be lovely the first thing everyone saw was one of the tracks we’re most proud of and got to look at the space we made the record we’re in.”

For more on the track, and a quick two minutes with Mr Garvey, go the the 6 Music site.

Elbow play the O2 in Dublin on March 31, 2011. A late Christmas present perhaps?
