Leaders of the Free World is the third studio album from Elbow and was released in 2005. It was entirely self-produced at Blueprint Studios in Salford, Machester a space the band hired for the duration of their recording sessions and has been described as a love-letter to Manchester.
The deluxe edition of the album features a bonus disc of radio sessions and live performances. It includes fan favourites “McGreggor” (the video of which is one of the band's favourites) and features a movie put together by previous Elbow collaborators the Soup Collective. After living in the roof of Blueprint Studios with Elbow and a host of friends dropping by with pens, pencils and cameras, the result was a collection of films, part documentary, part animated monster and part performance, the movie encompasses the working and development of the full album.
