Elbow - Build A Rocket Boys

“Lippy Kids” was the working title for Elbow’s fifth studio album. They changed it to Build A Rocket Boys!, but this song uses the original title, as you can see from this live in-the-studio video. It was shot at Blueprint Studios, where they recorded the whole album with producer/keyboard player Craig Potter. According to the band, Build’s about childhood and nostalgia — “Lippy Kids” has lines like “Do they know those days are golden?” You’ll hear the final album title in the lyrics, too. Watch:
