Guitarist promises that the band will 'do more recordings together'
The guitarist, who is currently promoting his new solo album ‘A+E’, told the Daily Record that though the band haven’t begun rehearsing for their live comeback at this month’s Brit Awards yet, they will definitely be returning to the studio soon.
The band will be honoured with the Outstanding Contribution To Music Award at the ceremony at the O2 Arena on February 21 and will perform at the ceremony. Asked about this and how preparations were going, Coxon replied: “It’s pretty nice to be getting the Brit award. We haven’t planned the rehearsals yet, but there will definitely be another Blur album.”
He went on to say that the band’s reunion in 2009 had been an “amazing healing experience” and promised that the band will do more recording together.
He said of this: “2009 was an amazing healing experience for us. We were really swept away with it and got a lot out of our systems. We realised how much we still had in common, that we are good friends, that we are brothers. We’re always going to meet up and want to play things. We do like recording. Eventually, even if things aren’t around the corner, Blur will do more recordings together. We all love each other and still like making music so that’s not a bad start.”
Blur were rumoured to have been working in the studio with producer William Orbit , after the producer tweeted an update that suggested Albarn and Coxon at least were working on new material with him. However, at this stage, neither Orbit nor the band have commented any further.
