Blur To Record New Album?
We’ve been down this road before with reunited Britpop greats Blur. They’ve spent the past few years alternately teasing new music and the end of their reunion, and the two new studio songs they have managed to record since reassembling, “Under The Westway” and “The Puritan,” are both great. Apparently, though, they may very well have more on the way, since the planets have aligned in a way that would seem to help a new Blur album come into existence. Last night, the band played Hong Kong’s AsiaWorld-Expo, and they were supposed to follow that show up with two in Japan that have since been canceled. And, as NME reports, Albarn told the crowd this: “So we have a week in Hong Kong, and we thought it would be a good time to try and record another record.” This is pretty much a best-case scenario, a short amount of time to hurry up and get something done. We’ll see if it yields anything.
