The new single, Fly Boy Blue / Lunette, has arrived!
If you have a passion for baritone sax, good god are you ever in luck..

(But if you're the U.S., good luck trying to immediately pre-order the album...)

I absolutely love this song - there is a break in it about halfway through, 'Lunette' I presume now - I got instant goosebumps.

Cannot wait to hear it again.......OH YES !

Like a time machine to asleep in the back but with their glorious orchestra as some kind of amazing anachronism

I'm in Canada, but I'm pretty sure I successfully pre-ordered the album when I bought the Jodrell Bank DVD. iTunes may be different I guess. As might Canada Smile

Good God almighty, that's sounding incredibly good, innit? I'm feeling ALLLLL the happies right now!

ETA: OK, I'm on my eighth listen in a row...more to love every time I hear it. And wow, Guy's lyrics and Pete's bass in particular are KILLING me, y'all.

Got a bit misty when I heard the second half start up (around the 3:12 mark) and thought, "Guy's back. The boys are back." Just lovely. You never realize how much you love/adore the band until a new song pops up. Two more months!

Yeah, believe me, that sax was also making me very happy. Honestly, every time I hear it I'm picking out something new to focus on, and all of it's sounding extremely right so far. Very promising indeed!

Hello! Not posted on here for a while (band inactivity and all that). I'm in the odd position of having heard the new track 1 1/2 times, having missed the first/Fly Boy Blue half of the song on the radio yesterday and only heard the whole thing in full last night.

I'll have to give it a few more listens before it sinks in. Doesn't strike me as being your typical lead-off single, by any means (not a bad thing). An intriguing taster for the album.

Listening to mark Radcliffe they mentioned it wasn't to lead-off single, that will be something else. This is a give away apparently...

Well... While I do think that 'Fly Boy Blue / Lunette' (more the former part than the latter) is a minor track as a first single compared to Grounds of Divorce, Forget Myself (etc.), it is definitely more vibrant than BARB: I love that. And 'Lunette' is fantastic, as are the lyrics. I've missed you, Elbow!!
