The dance duo claim they've been approached to produce some tracks...

CHEMICAL BROTHERS have been approached to work with BLUR on their new album.

Last weekend the dance stars performed a headline slot at V2002, replacing Travis, who cancelled due to an injury to drummer Neil Primrose.

Speaking recently, Ed Simons said that they will spend the next month working on new songs.

“We don’t muck about”, he told Rolling Stone. “Our studio is in Elephant And Castle in south London and we reconvene Monday to start again. I’ve got a month before I get married, and I’m gonna spend that month thinking about how we’re going to move forward musically. We don’t see any reason why every time you go into the studio and start writing music you can’t go and make the best music we’ve ever made. We don’t feel limited at all. We feel we can do it all again and make it something great.”

In addition to their new album, Simons claimed Chemical Brothers are considering working with Blur on their new album as producers on some songs.

He said: “They want us to listen to some music they’re making with the possibility of producing or co-producing with them.”

It was widely reported Blur and Fatboy Slim were planning on working on the as-yet-untitled album together, but Slim recently told NME.COM the pairing was unlikely as he hasn’t heard from them.
