In a special contribution for the soundtrack to the romantic comedy Man Up, the Manchester group Elbow have recorded the tune "What Time Do You Call This?", which recalls the orchestral grandeur and optimism of their megahit "One Day Like This".

Elbow’s most recent LP is 2014’s The Take Off and Landing of Everything. As Ryan Lathan wrote in his 8 out of 10 review of the album for PopMatters, “As [Guy] Garvey and company enter middle-age and continue to write songs that challenge themselves and their audience, there’s little doubt their finest hours as a band are yet to come.”
