Blur reveal they have recorded a ‘few things’ since reformation


Blur have recorded a ‘few things’ since their reformation.

The ‘Parklife’ hitmakers ‘ who reunited for a series of concerts in summer 2009, seven years after they last performed together ‘ released a one-off single, ‘Fool’s Day’ last April and guitarist Graham Coxon admits they have worked on other tracks, though he is unsure any of them will ever be released.

He said: ‘ suppose every now and then we like to meet up and record a few things. Whether it sees the light of day or not is a different thing. We just do stuff when we feel like it. I’d quite like to have a bit of time so you can really get stuck in.’

Graham insists he and the rest of the group ‘ Damon Albarn, Alex James and Dave Rowntree ‘ are enjoying taking a relaxed approach to creating new tracks as they fear putting pressure on themselves would cause too much tension.

He added: ‘All we’re doing is getting together every now and then when we really feel the need. We don’t feel obliged in that way. That kind of thing f***ed Blur up in the first place ‘ the obligation, the work. So we don’t want to be in the situation where we’re not enjoying ourselves.’

Though Graham says the group will ‘definitely’ release new music in future, fans should expect a long wait.

He said: ‘We’re going to do it regularly. I suppose it might turn into an LP in six years or something.

‘Meeting up every now and then and drinking a lot of nettle tea and maybe turning the tape recorder on and jamming around a few ideas.’
