Michael Eavis has said that he is sure David Bowie could headline Glastonbury again.

The singer is being strongly tipped to play the 2014 event, having previously headlined the festival in 1971 and 2000.

Speaking to the Central Somerset Gazette, Eavis said: "The younger ones sort out most of the music, but I like to book the headline names...I can't tell you at the moment who that will be as we're still talking to people. David's done it a couple of times before but I'm sure he could come back again."

Last month, Eavis confirmed that he has already booked three headliners for next year's festival, but refused to name any, saying that the bands would only be announced once tickets were on sale. Eavis said that picking headliners is difficult because "there aren't many left...There were maybe a dozen headliner potentials so we’re running out of headliners but we've got the last three for next year". This year's event was headlined by Arctic Monkeys, The Rolling Stones and Mumford & Sons.

Last week (July 16), David Bowie unveiled the new video for his track 'Valentine's Day', which you can watch below. The track is the fourth single from his album 'The Next Day', which was released on March 8. It was his first album of new material since 2003's 'Reality'.
