The band are still buzzing after the success of their 'Think Tank' tour...
BLUR are planning to record and release a new EP next year, following the success of their recent eight month-long ‘THINK TANK’ tour.
Singer Damon Albarn also said that one of the early demo tracks featured on his limited edition solo album ‘Democrazy’ could possibly be developed further for at least one of the songs on the proposed EP.
“We are in discussion with our separate lawyers about recording an EP next year,” Albarn told Xfm. “I definitely think we’re gonna put out some new material, but we’re not going to be touring like this, not for a while.”
He added: “There is this one song on ‘Democrazy’ called ‘Sub Species Of An American Day’ that I think would make a fine Blur single,” Albarn explained, “There’s always a lot of material about, it’s just a case of finding the appropriate time to record it.”
Speaking about the band’s ‘Think Tank’ tour, the singer said: “Well, we’ve been on tour for eight months and it’s been a real celebration, as we’ve been doing a lot of old stuff. Quite emotional really. It’s been really good for the soul seeing the audiences this year.”
“It’s been extremely hard work, but it’s been extremely rewarding. I mean, we’re still talking to each other. At the end of the last tour we did we certainly weren’t… then one of us (guitarist Graham Coxon) left!” he said.
As previously reported on NME.COM, Albarn will play a one off gig in London at the end of this month.
He will play at west London club Neighbourhood on December 22.
Albarn will showcase material from ’Democrazy’ and Terry Hall – ex-[a][/a] vocalist – will also DJ at the gig.
Only 700 tickets are available for the show, and are priced at £10. They will be available from Honest Jon’s Record Store on Portobello Road in west London, and selected other outlets.
