In an interview with NME Magazine, Damon has revealed that he still gets an “amazing feeling” from playing with his old band mates and the hit-makers are back in the studio!
But it may not be the sunny Brit-pop and hard-rocking chart toppers you’ve come to expect from the four piece – the first 'song' they’ve laid down is actually a spoken word piece with poet Michael Horovitz, which was put together in protest about the possible cancellation of the Notting Hill Carnival.
But whether the track will appear on the charts any time soon is another matter…
“If they'd have cancelled the carnival – and thank God they didn't – maybe we'd have put it out,” Damon said. "It had its moment: it was a perfect plea to reinstate the carnival. So it wasn't relevant – it was relevant for about 12 hours.”
Damon also added in the NME interview that in amongst his already packed schedule, which includes forming a new band with Flea and Tony Allen, recording in the Congo and prepping the ‘Gorillaz Greatest Hits’ album, there is the possibility that Blur will announce some world tour dates!
Make it happen guys!
Would you go see Blur if they came to Australia? Let us know by commenting below…
