Alex Turner has said that there is no reason Arctic Monkeys could not headline Glastonbury for a third time.

The band, who closed the Friday night of Glastonbury 2013 with a career-spanning set which included two new songs from their fourthcoming fifth album 'AM, first headlined the event in 2007.

Speaking in an interview you can read in full in this week's NME, available on newsstands and digitally now, Turner was confident of coming back once again. "I don't see why we can't do it again," he said. "In a few years time... I mean it! It seemed like everyone was having a good party, you know. And I know we certainly were. So why not?"

Alex Turner previously said that Arctic Monkeys' headline set at Glastonbury 2013 was "one of the best gigs we've ever done".

The frontman headlined the Worthy Farm festival on Friday night (June 27), marking the band's return to the event they first headlined in 2007. Speaking to NME directly after the gig, Turner said: "It's one of the best gigs we've ever done. Ever! Just because it's... Glastonbury. It wasn’t raining, and... it's Glastonbury!"
