The group and the singer will record a brand new song penned by Damon Albarn...

BLUR will enter a recording studio next month to record their contribution to the forthcoming album by MARIANNE FAITHFULL, NME.COM can reveal.

Bassist Alex James told NME.COM that the Damon Albarn penned ‘Your Time Will Come’ will be sung by Faithfull, with the possibility of Albarn providing backing vocals on the song.

James said: “We’re going in next month to do this thing for Marianne Faithfull, it’s for her (album). The song’s a new one called ‘Your Time Will Come’. I don’t think it’ll be a duet though.”

Faithfull is working with a number of high profile musicians on her new album, the follow-up to ’99s ‘Vagabond Ways’.

NME.COM previously revealed that ex-Smashing Pumpkins vocalist Billy Corgan is involved, while other bands linked with the record include Beck, Pulp and Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart.
