Elbow singer Guy Garvey at this year's Nationwide Mercury Prize ceremony
Elbow are set to record an album of children's songs.
The Nationwide Mercury Prize winners are planning to follow up their recent record, The Seldom Seen Kid, with a special project after being inspired by their own kids
Frontman Guy Garvey said: "I want to do something that really fires kids' imaginations."
The band are hoping to begin work on the new project before they kick off their UK tour on 6 October.
"We initially thought that it would be great to make music for children because the lads in the band have got kids and they were saying how little really decent music for children there is," Garvey told Billboard.
"The more that we thought about it the more that we liked the idea.
"We've quite often been up for having songs on children's animated films, but we thought that it would be great to actually be at the starting point for that process."
The band are also planning to release an animated film to accompany the album.
Garvey added: "I'm thinking that's it going to be something to do with flying (in) dreams."
The band's current record is sitting at Number Eight in the official UK album chart following their Mercury Prize victory.
