Elbow – Leaders of the Free World (2006)
For my second Elbow outing in the Epic series, here’s the third studio album released on 12 September 2005 in the UK and 21 February 2006 in the US on the V2 record label. The Japanese version of the album (released on 7 September 2005) features two bonus tracks, “McGreggor” and “The Good Day”, which were both B-sides to the first single “Forget Myself”. Leaders of the Free World was entirely produced by the band at Blueprint Studios in Salford, Greater Manchester, a space the band hired for the duration of their recording sessions.
