Especially since it's near impossible to find things here, I'd love to see the rarities/B-sides compiled and released. I would love to be a collector but there's no way I could afford it!

New album won't be out until end-2010.
They've been too busy touring to do any recording...

The Guardian wrote:
Warmed by their Mercury prize win and a now double-platinum record, Elbow are "well on [their] way" toward album number five, frontman Guy Garvey said this week. The only catch is they are taking their time.

"It's tempting to try and capitalise on this one's success, but I think it's more important that we make sure it's a good record," Garvey told Billboard. Though the Bury band have started working on new songs, they don't expect to release anything until the tail end of 2010.

"We've got a bunch of stuff we've been writing on tour that we're very slowly knocking into shape," Garvey said. "We're trying to do just five or six days of writing every few weeks, and then we're going to collate it, and do the same thing again for a year and half."

The Seldom Seen Kid, Elbow's breakthrough album, was released in March 2008. They have since collected a Brit award for best British group and two Ivor Novello songwriting prizes.

Despite their UK success, Elbow have yet to penetrate the US peaking at No 109 on the Billboard 200. They are still attempting to break America and will support Coldplay on a forthcoming tour but Garvey isn't much bothered by the ambivalence of US audiences. "Conquering the world is a game of the young man, really," the 35-year-old said. "We've been out there for every album and we do OK in the major cities ... We're going to go and have a look."

Five years is going to be a long wait, but i can totally understand why they're doing it. They've got quite a standard to maintain, i'd say they've got nothing to worry about, the three that proceeded it are as good as the one that finally got them their long overdue acclaim!

Well, and IF it really lasts that long I hope it will bore away the folks who talk during less known tracks on concerts... silent
