Elbow have revealed that the title of their forthcoming album has been given a last-minute name change.

The band's sixth studio record will now be called The Take Off And Landing Of Everything and will be released on 3 March.

Lead singer, Guy Garvey, originally told NME earlier this year that the Manchester's band latest album had the working title All At Once.

He then went on to say that it would have the title Carry Her, Carry Me.

But the front man has now revealed that he changed it to the new official title at the last minute.

In an interview with Q, Guy Harvey said: "It always happens like this. The title's now from a song on there; this huge, cacophonous thing born of our love for space rock, prog, Primal Scream and Spiritualized."

Speaking about what the name The Take Off And Landing Of Everything meant to the band, he added: "It's to do with the fact that there have been lots of life events…There are five members of the band, people have split up, got together, had children, it never stops."

Since 2001, Elbow have released five studio albums.

The Seldom Seen Kid won the Mercury Prize in 2008 and 2011's Build a Rocket Boys! was also nominated but lost out to PJ Harvey's Let England Shake.

Their debut album, Asleep in the Back, was also on the shortlist for the prize in 2001.

In 2012 they released First Steps, the BBC theme for the 2012 London Olympics.

Elbow announced an eight-date arena tour in September to support their sixth studio album.
