Elbow’s Guy Garvey on a fourth number one album and the impact of drummer Al Reeves

Elbow have returned to the top of the charts.

Their tenth studio album in three decades, Audio Vertigo has tonight become their fourth number one. It has had almost universal acclaim with the critics and the band are soon going on tour.
