Elbow have said that they will not be performing the song they wrote for this Summer's Olympics during their headline slot at Latitude this weekend.
The band will play at Latitude on Saturday (july 14) but have ruled out performing 'Little Steps', the song they wrote for the BBC's coverage of this Summer's Games.
Speaking to the Daily Star, band member Craig Potter said: “We didn’t want it to be confused with a regular Elbow song so we’ve got other voices on there. The song is about the Olympic spirit, not Elbow, so we won’t play it live.
“Guy had really strong ideas about capturing the spirit of all the athletes taking part, not just the gold medal winners.”
Potter went on to say he was 'surprised' Elbow have not worked on more soundtrack material given the amount their songs are used on TV normally.
“Considering we’re known for having an epic sound, I’m a bit surprised we haven’t been offered more film soundtrack work to be honest," he said. Adding: "Working with the BBC was a great experience and we’ve wanted to try a movie soundtrack for a while. "
You can hear 'Little Steps' by Elbow here. The Olympic Games kick off in London on July 27th.
