The Seldom Seen Kid is the matching songbook to Elbow's critically acclaimed and Mercury prize-winning fourth album, featuring four pages of colour photographs.
Elbow formed in Bury, Lancashire, in 1990. Over the band's 18 year career they have released four studio albums, four EPs and ten top fifty singles in the UK. Their debut album, Asleep in the Back, released in 2001, was hailed as a seminal album of the new millennium, gaining them a Mercury Music Prize nomination and a BRIT Award nomination.
The Seldom Seen Kid is more commercial than previous albums and has brought the band the recognition they rightly deserve, winning the Mercury Music Prize in 2008. The band also picked up the Brit Award for ‘Best British Band’ and the NME ‘Outstanding Contribution to British Music’ prize in February 2009.
Both critically acclaimed and highly commercial, this band-approved songbook includes the feel-good anthem One Day Like This and countless other hits, which are all arranged here for guitar tab and vocals.
