Elbow have named their forthcoming new album 'Carry Her Carry Me'.

Frontman Guy Garvey told NME earlier this year, the Manchester's band sixth LP had the working title 'All At Once'. But in a new interview with Q magazine, he confirms the band have settled on a different title. He also admits that he got ideas for the album's lyrical content by spending six weeks in New York.

He said: "Walking around New York I feel like my antennae are up. My ears are open for snatches of beautiful conversation. In Manhattan, it just feels like all the time, any second, somebody's going to utter that thing that changes the world.''

The group spent two weeks working on the early stages of the album at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios in Bath and Garvey explained that being in isolation was exactly what they needed to give them a creative push.

He added: "It's the least aptly-named studio in the world. Real World? Is it fuck. But when you're there, you get six months work done in two weeks. To go and live and breathe your record without the distractions of the rest of life, you make creative decisions you would not have made at home.'' Garvey also admitted how excited he gets when a tune comes to him. He joked: "If I'm excited about a tune, I'm as likely to throw my trousers down and yell out the window.''

The band will release their sixth album on March 3, 2014 with an eight-date arena tour following in April.

Elbow will play:

Birmingham LG Arena (April 5)
Glasgow The Hydro (6)
Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (8)
Manchester Phones 4 U Arena (9)
Leeds First Direct Arena (11)
Liverpool Echo Arena (12)
Nottingham Capital FM Arena (14)
London The O2 (16)
