Blur set to record new album

Thursday May 9, 2013

Blur are set to record a new album, according to reports.

The band, who are touring Asia, have apparently started putting down ideas for their first full collection in a decade.

Frontman Damon Albarn told a crowd in Hong Kong that the band could be recording while filling in a gap in their schedule.

He was quoted as saying: "We were supposed to be playing in Japan next week. Due to unforeseen circumstances we were unable to go there.

"So we have a week in Hong Kong and we thought it would be a good time to try to record another record, so we're going to make one here."

The Britpop band - Damon, Alex James, Graham Coxon and Dave Rowntree - first reunited in 2009 after spitting in 2003.
