Elbow want Bond soundtrack

Elbow want to record a James Bond theme.

The 'One Day Like This' hitmakers worked on a song for Simon Pegg's movie 'Man Up' and enjoyed the experience so much, they have now set their sights on the iconic spy franchise and want to soundtrack the entire movie.

Frontman Guy Garvey said: "Simon's been a fan and a pal for a couple of years and they approached us to do the last song of the film. It took a couple of days but it was really interesting working over the film footage.

"We've always said we'd love to do a full film, because we find it quite easy to work to that remit. The next James Bond, well that would be good. We've been hinting at that for years."

Guy has also been working hard on his debut solo album and though he found working alone "strange", he also had fun and is pleased his bandmates are supportive.

Speaking to Absolute Radio at OnBlackheath festival in London on Saturday (12.09.15), he said: "They're all great, they've been really, really supportive and they all like it which is fantastic, you know, I've had really positive feedback on the music from them because I've only ever relied on their opinions, really. It is strange doing it on your own so to speak.

"It doesn't sound like an Elbow record but it doesn't sound deliberately not like an Elbow record either. It's never going to be as epic or as lush as an Elbow record but it's been great fun and I've worked with some people who I love."

Elbow headlined the first night of OnBlackheath with a 12-song set that delighted the audience, with 'The Bones of You', 'One Day Like This' and closer 'Grounds for Divorce' proving particular highlights.

Earlier in the day, Manic Street Preachers, Anna Calvi and Jack Savoretti took to the stage, while yesterday (13.09.15) saw Madness take on headliner duties after performances from Kelis, Laura Mvula and the cast of 'Sunny Afternoon'.
