According to Damon Albarn, one track they've already recorded looks like being the band's next release...

BLUR will regroup in May to complete their new album.

Vocalist Damon Albarn has been on tour with Gorillaz across North America throughout March.

Speaking to MTV news, he said that his original group were hoping to put the finishing touches to the record in a month long studio session in May.

Approximately 14 songs have already been recorded, but Albarn said that one song, ‘Don’t Bomb When You Are the Bomb’, could be a single.

However, he was unwilling to discuss the direction of the band’s new music or the content of the lyrics, simply commenting: “I can’t really say anything about it, because if I did, you wouldn’t want me back here (in the US) next time.”

Blur‘s new album, the follow-up to 1999’s ’13’, is due for release later this year or early 2003.
