Graham Coxon has stated that there will not be another Blur album in the near future.

The guitarist made the revelation in a conversation with a fan on Twitter earlier today (Nov 26). Though far from a definitive statement on the future of the band, Coxon gives short shrift to the idea of releasing another album with Damon Albarn, Alex James and Dave Rowntree. Asked if there is a new Blur album coming out and, if so, when? Coxon replied by simply saying "No". Scroll down the page to see the tweet.

Blur played a huge show in London's Hyde Park earlier this year and released new songs 'Under The Westway' and 'The Puritan', sparking rumours that the band may record a full album worth of material for release in 2013. The group also have a number of European tour dates booked including shows at Primavera in Spain and Rock Werchter in Belgium.




Graham Coxon recently penned a song for hit Channel 4 comedy Fresh Meat. In the show, Kingsley performed the "angst ridden" song after deciding to pursue a career in the music industry. Coxon said he agreed to write the song after learning that Blur are Kingsley actor Joe Thomas' favourite band.
