Guy Garvey - Guy Garvey's Album Anxiety Dreams
British rocker Guy Garvey suffers "anxiety dreams" ahead of every Elbow release, because he's so convinced his albums will flop.
The band is releasing its fifth studio record, Build a Rocket Boys!, in the U.K. on Monday (07Mar10) and Garvey admits he's been having trouble sleeping ahead of the record's release.
And he's not the only one - his fellow bandmembers are also being blighted by strange dreams.
Garvey tells Britain's Daily Star, "I have very interesting sleep patterns before an album comes out on account of anxiety dreams. I had one recently where my friend had posted all my lyrics online.
"It looked like one of those religious posters you used to get in Athena, like a desert background with a psalm written on it in italics. There was a hit-count in the corner of the screen spinning round. People were giving me horrendous criticism, real damning stuff.
"We all have them, the whole band. Our drummer plays some keyboards on this album too and he had this dream where he was stood on this massive piano, miles long. He had to use all his body weight to press them down."
