Elbow are set to unveil a major new track at the Isle Of Wight festival this weekend.

The award-winning band are currently working on their sixth album and keyboardist Craig Potter revealed they plan to showcase one of their new songs when they perform at at the event on Friday.

He told the Star: "We're hoping to play (the track) at Isle Of Wight as it's shaping up to be one of the big songs on our next album.

"It's got huge guitars and it's quite psychedelic. I'm not sure if it's a future single, but it sounds like the kind of song which will hopefully be a favourite at our gigs."

Craig said the album - the follow-up to 2011's Build A Rocket Boys! - is "30% finished", with singer Guy Garvey getting inspired by countries he's visited.

"Guy's lyrics are influenced by travelling the world so far, but it could all change. It's only right near the end of each album that the sound and theme tends to take shape."
