LIVES IN A, ERM, VERY BIG CASTLE…

Hmm...and we're also here to remind you tickets for the band's London shows will be on sale HERE from 9am on Saturday morning...

BLUR bassist ALEX JAMES wants to write a book about music – and then own a castle.

The star, currently preparing for the band’s comeback with new album ‘Think Tank’ due out on May 5, has revealed his long-term plans in one of his regular postings on the band’s official website [url=]blur.co.uk.

He said: “It’s been another glorious week in rock, chasing dreams, wedding dresses, locations, backing singers, fried breakfasts, yoga, running, photos, interviews, new assistant called Amber, [a][/a], Sam Taylor-Wood. Ding dong merrily on high.

“I’m going to write a book probably about music, but I don’t know. You can do whatever you want and everything can change. You start off as an ordinary person who has done some interesting things and if you keep going you eventually become an interesting person. That’s what happens.

“I want a fuck off castle and I’m going to get one. Dreams become reality – it’s inevitable.”

As previously revealed on NME.COM, Blur are to play a four night residency in London – and tickets, priced £20, go on sale at 9am tomorrow (March 1).

The group, who travel out to the US for an appearance at the Coachella Festival (April 26), will play at the London Astoria on May 8, 9, 10 and 12.
