Elbow Score No.1 Album, But Are They Headlining Glastonbury 2014?

Elbow have topped the UK albums chart with their sixth effort, The Take Off And Landing of Everything. The record, described as a love letter to both New York and Manchester, fended off competition from Paloma Faith's A Perfect Contradiction, which debuted at number two. Pharrell Williams' GIRL was pushed down to number three.

Over on the singles chart, dance anthem Tsunami (Jump) for Canadian duo DVBBS and Miami DJ is the new number one. Featuring rapper Tinie Tempah, the song was first released in September last year. This time, it took the top spot and pushed My Love by Route 94 down to second place. Pharrell's Oscar-nominated track Happy was at number three, while Pixie Lott's Nasty could only settle for number nine.

Attention now turns to Elbow's rumoured headline slot at this year's Glastonbury Festival. Last year, frontman Guy Garvey hinted that the Manchester group could be heading to Worthy Farm, saying, "There's nothing on paper, but I hope we play next year, because it's the best party on Earth. There's nothing official yet."

During a recent interview on Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie's BBC6 Music show, Garvey offered a rather blunt 'we can't talk about that' response when quizzed about possible festival dates in the summer.

So far, Arcade Fire are the only confirmed headliner for the festival, which welcomed the Rolling Stones, Mumford & Sons and Arctic Monkeys last year.
