Elbow have announced details of their forthcoming sixth studio album. Currently sporting the working title, All At Once, the new LP will see release in the U.K. on March 10 of next year (U.S. release plans have yet to be confirmed). In an interview with NME frontman Guy Garvey says the title phrase ties into the record's primary theme, which centers in on the fact all five band members are entering their 40s. "When you’re 40, you're all ages at once, because you're thinking of your youth, which has very definitely passed, and about how you became the person you are," says Garvey. "You wonder about how the rest of your life plays out from here."

Recorded at the band's own studio, Blueprint in Manchester, and at Peter Gabriel's studio, Real World, the album was produced by Elbow keyboardist Craig Potter, and includes songs titled "This Blue World," "My Sad Captains," "New York Morning," and "Charge," the last of which is "about an old man in a young persons' bar" that the band previewed on their last tour.

The new album follows Build A Rocket Boys!, which was nominated for the 2011 Mercury Prize (the band won for 2008's Seldom Seen Kid).
