Elbow are an English rock band consisting of Guy Garvey (lead vocals, guitar), Craig Potter (keyboard, piano, backing vocals), Mark Potter (guitar, backing vocals) and Pete Turner (bass guitar, backing vocals). They have played together since 1990, adopting the Elbow band name in 1997.

Red” is a single by English rock band Elbow and the first single from their first album, Asleep in the Back. It was released on 23 April 2001 in two formats: 7″ vinyl and two CDs. The 7″ vinyl version had the LP colored red for the single and had a slightly longer version of “Vum Garda”. “Red” had been previously released on The Noisebox EP, which contained an earlier version of the song. “Vum Garda” was also released on the 12″ Vinyl pressing of Asleep in the Back. The CDs were released with two different sets of art work that were similar to the one on the 7″ vinyl.

In an interview, Guy Garvey claims the song was inspired by a friend with a severe drug addiction: “This was about a concern for a friend who was doing too much speed, to the point where I worried how it was going to turn out for her. She’s fine as it turns out.”
