The long-awaited follow-up to 1998’s ‘Mezzanine’ is now complete, and due for release in early 2003.
Robert ‘3-D’ Del Naja has recorded much of the record alone, and has recruited a host of guest vocalists, including Sinead O’ Connor and Horace Andy. Albarn has recorded a part for an as-yet-untitled song that will feature on the record. However, he isn’t credited. There are also rumours of Blurand [a][/a] playing shows together next year, although nothing is confirmed.
This year, Albarn and 3-D have been working with CND in a campaign to prevent US-led attacks on Iraq.
