Elbow have hinted that a new album could be on its way by promising to make a "special announcement" next week.

The band posted a photo of themselves in the studio on their Facebook wall accompanied by the message: "Elbow will be making a special announcement next week. Make sure you're signed up to the newsletter." Fans are then directed to a sign-up page for the band's mailing list.

Elbow released their fifth and most recent album, 'Build A Rocket Boys!', in March 2011. Their last live shows came during a six-date UK arena tour which took place during November and December of last year (2012).

Speaking on stage during a gig at Nottingham's Capital FM Arena on November 26, frontman Guy Garvey told the crowd: "We're taking a gap year".

Shortly before the tour began, Garvey had outlined the band's plans for a hiatus in an interview with The Sun. "We've got our arena tour this November and December, which will be like a farewell party," he explained. "We've already done six songs for the next album, then we'll come back to finish it next year."
