The Rolling Stones could be set to headline Glastonbury in 2013 if reports are to be believed.

The Sun, a tabloid news_backuppaper, is claiming that Glastonbury boss Michael Eavis is trying to book the band who have never played the legendary festival because it might be his last chance.

The 'Stones are set to celebrate their 50th anniversary as a band and have let slip that they're about to embark on live dates in November, around the same time as their forthcoming hits compilation "Grrr!".

"It would be a massive coup to get the band playing Glasto on what could be their last round of live dates," a source told the Sun.

"Getting a decision from the whole band can be tough and at the moment they are without an agent for live shows, which is not helping the situation. But there is a good chance 2013 will finally be the year they make it."

Yesterday the band debuted a brand new song "Doom And Gloom", which you can hear in the player below. It's one of two brand new songs along with "One More Shot" which will feature on "Grrr!".

    This song is surprisingly not bad. The lyrics are amusing.
    why surprisingly?..... they always been great, i expected nothing less but this is another classic..... just have to love it
    I'd love to see them Live. Probably wouldn't go to Glastonbury though, and if they did a stadium tour decent tickets would be hella expensive.
    Wow! This song is really nice! Gonna look forward to the new album!
    I have tickets so really really hope they play. It will be my only shot of seeing them live.
    Wow, actually I never liked them but that song is pretty badass. Strange to think that they're all like 70 years old.
    For some reason I can imagine this song being used in a CoD: zombies ad. I'm actually surprised. I really like it!
    Didn't EA use Gimme Shelter for BF3? That would be pretty good retaliation from Activision, if I do say so myself.
    Wow is right. Love the Stones but never expect new stuff to be so solid. This is awesome. Maybe they should ghostwrite for the new Soundgarden which so far sounds terrible.
    My god...they sound like they're still in their 20s. I'm in awe. Incredible, incredible band.
    So disappointed. I know that the song is ok, but in comparison to the past rolling stones i know, this is sad. I just don't see how anyone who really likes this band can say that this new song is so great, Long live the stones we all knew in the 60's and 70's
    Glastonbury, legendary, that ended with introducing "Rap" music. But great song by the Rolling Stones
