“Given we should be seeing 100,000 of you fans on this tour we thought we’d bring forward the release of a record we made at the end of last year.”
Elbow recently scored their third UK No. 1 album when their eighth album 'Giants Of All Sizes' topped the charts in October.
The new song also features on the band's new album, 'Giants Of All Sizes'.
The shows kick off at Belfast’s Waterfront Hall on 29 March and wrap up with two nights at London’s Eventim Apollo on 27 and 28 April.
The new tracks is an addition to the band’s headline festival sets over the summer, including a massive, sold out, homecoming show at Castlefield Bowl in July.
Frontman Guy Garvey describes the record as “an angry, old blue lament which finds its salvation in family, friends, the band and new life.”
